Tony: only the LPA could revoke the TPO and that same LPA has a
statutory duty under NERC S40 to conserve biodiversity. Traditional
orchards are a UKBAP Priority Habitat and complete destruction would be
contrary to that and PPS9. Probably there is some half way house to be
horse traded towards, perhaps with at least some of the orchard being
retained as a "community orchard".

Subject: Orchard under threat

Hi All I need some advice, I've just found out that an ancient orchard
with a preservation order on it is under threat from a developer. The
developer has enlisted the help of our local housing trust. Of the 490
proposed homes the housing trust gets 49 affordable homes. Through the
grapevine we have here'd that they are trying to get the TPO on the
trees lifted. I would welcome any advice on fighting this

Yours Tony
