Ron - trees are biodiversity too and NERC requires all public bodies to
have regard to the conservation of biodiversity in the exercise of its
functions. It is not specific to EPS or Natura 2000 habitats but is a
general duty applicable to biodiversity - the whole variety of life in
all its forms.

Bettina, it is my understanding that this (NERC Act 2006) rlates to
European Legislation and is mainly concerned with habitat and protection
of species rather than appropriate for the protection of trees in
relation to construction. It cunteracts the fact that Utility operators
are pretty much exempt where works are necssary for the improvements to
operating equipment etc. So, you are simply back to BS.5837, NJUG 10 but
with regard to the impacts to the surrounding habitat in ruarl type
areas or SNCIs etc.

Subject: AMS for the Waste Planning Authority?

Morning All,
I have been asked to provide an AMS for the Waste Planning Authority.
The Water company would like to install a new section of sewer + 2 new
manholes beneath the outer canopy edge of a tree on a road side verge.

There is already a bus stop with concrete base, telegraph pole and light
column in the same area beneath the outer canopy edge.

The reason given for the AMS is -
"Protection of trees is in accordance with Section 40 of the Natural
Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006 (this confers a general
biodiversity duty upon LA's whilst exercising their functions)".

Does anyone have a copy of section 40 or a weblink so that I can have a
quick read through it?

And where sewage apparatus installation is concerned, is there anything
over and above the usual AMS that I should consider?

As always, your help is gratefully received.

many thanks
