On a positive note the 'policy' of demanding a photo of every tree on every 
application which I disputed with my LPA and posted about a couple of weeks 
ago has been dropped on the threat of going to appeal over non determination.
I also raised the issue of multiple copies and they now require only one.
Thanks for responses - especially Chris Hastie.
It might just have been a poorly informed or obstructive planning officer 
originally dealing with this particular application but I'm pleased at the 
outcome - and a letter I can quote from the head of planning. Discussing the 
Blue Book with planning officers who've never heard of it can be frustrating.

I've sort of lost faith in the review process. I noted the response to all  
the critiques the DCLoG received but couldn't see that they'd acted on any of 
 
them. There's a certain element of the Civil Service apparently wanting to be 
 
seen to be consulting their 'Stakeholders' (yeuuch) while in actual fact just 
 ignoring not only the people involved but also the due workings of  
Parliament.
 
As I've said before; it seems to me that some of the Batho proposals seem  to 
have been sneaked in through the back door, despite their being pretty  
comprehensively rejected by our elected representatives in 1994. 
 
Which might not be a problem if it didn't actually discourage people from  
growing trees......
