Just to prevent any misinterpretation of the unclear article.

1. A TPO was made to an area of oak trees AFTER some other oak trees had been 
2. The TPO'd oak trees were ring barked 3 hours AFTER the TPO had been made
3. The High Court ruled that as the owners had been served by hand that 
afternoon, then so should the interested developer. We had therefore not 
served the TPO on the developer as soon as practicable, and the developer was 
prejudiced by this failure because the Council was seeking to prosecute. TPO 
was quashed, therefore no offence has been committed.

The article is not very informative (are they ever?)and frankly puzzling.

The TPO was served after the "girdling" and yet the prosecution was for "ring 
barking". Maybe they had another go.

Recorded delivery to an interested party? I fear I too would have regarded 
that as reasonable and sufficient. If they signed for it then they knew.

Why would you ring bark any tree other than for biodiversity purposes (or, I 
suppose, money)?

And all this time I thought Tandridge was in Devon, sorry Alastair!

Why, one asks, would a company wholly innocent of any ill intent and clearly 
(indeed proven to be) as un-guilty as the driven snow, ring-bark trees on 
potential development land?
Are you permitted to comment Alastair?

(And does this have any bearing on having only 85 quid in the equipment
