Trees can be the reason that planning permissions are given even when
windows face directly into each other.

That is to say that the screening benefit the trees give removes the
over looking.

Yes, screening is something you might consider among other things, but
what I'm saying is be cautious ... privacy is not a good reason to
protect a tree. A tree needs to be of good merit in itself and again,
one should not refuse pruning on he basis of privacy if the works are
acceptable in themselves. Crown lifting and various other works are all
fairly acceptable. Privacy infers individual private amenity whereas
TPOs need to look at broader interests. This is Just one point of view
to bounce around the forum ... I could be completely wrong yet again.

Not sure about that Ron. 3.3 (2) of the Blue Book states TPOs can be
made for the screening value that trees afford.

" individual impact: the mere fact that a tree is publicly visible will
not itself be sufficient to warrant a TPO. The LPA should also assess
the tree's particular importance by reference to its size and form, its
future potential as an amenity, taking into account any special factors
such as its rarity, value as a screen or contribution to the character
or appearance of a conservation area. As noted in paragraph 3.2 above,
in relation to a group of trees or woodland, an assessment should be
made of its collective impact;"

Edmund,

This is a quick answer ... TPOs do not deal with private amenity ...
Privacy. One good reason being, in my mind, because it is unsustainable
... Trees can be lost for all sorts of reasons ... Storms, natural
die-back and big trees don't really function to provide privacy. Hedges
are more appropriate for privacy

Please forgive my obtuseness but this is a question I asked in August
and I have already forgotten the answer. Further I have spent time on
the archive and found only my question. Maybe there was no answer.

I am under the impression that privacy and the loss of it cannot be a
consideration when looking at tree work applications but I can find no
support in the legislation or the blue book for this, except perhaps the
rather brief section 6.45

Please can someone put me right on this?

Thanks as ever.

Edmund
