RE: Making a TPO with category C and other trees

Really Bill, an old hand like you still shocked at LPA incompetence, or 
indeed the failure of some large organisations to maintain impeccable 
records? Evidence of confirmation is something I dare say we all struggle 
with from time to time, I know I have. Maybe it's in cardboard box 799 in a 
big shed near Loughborough.

Still the cat C exists specifically for trees that have not yet been planted 
as part of an approved scheme, so the failure in the case you describe was 
not with the TPO, but the LPA failure to enforce its landscaping condition.

Without really thinking it through, I like your idea of the area order, 
though you'd have to be confident about the timing.

Make sure what you've done is clear and why. Keep good records: Over the last 
year I've been shocked by the inability of LPAs to produce evidence of 
confirmation, any idea of why they ever bothered protecting the trees 
(despite the TPO being less than a couple of decades old), and absolutely no 
record of what's been removed since or when. I've also seen one that was 
clearly served on trees that hadn't been planted when it was served, entirely 
based on the planting scheme.....

Never having been a TO I think I'd be inclined to make an Area Order and 
clarify it later, when the trees have been planted?

Bill.

Hi Edmund.

Just one TPO. The order takes effect as per usual for the existing 
trees, and for the conditioned trees when they are planted.

I'm in the process of making a TPO on a large number of trees planted 
a few years ago to discharge a condition and have discovered a few 
omissions.
This is not in itself a problem since we are confident they will be 
planted this season, but I do not want to delay serving the order.

The TPO template states:
Application to trees to be planted pursuant to a condition 4. In 
relation to any tree identified in the first column of the Schedule by 
the letter "C", being a tree to be planted pursuant to a condition 
imposed under paragraph (a) of section 197 (planning permission to 
include appropriate provision for preservation and planting of trees), 
this Order takes effect as from the time when the tree is planted.

So if I read this literally I will have to make 2 orders, one on those 
planted and another on the category C trees?  Or can I in fact put my 
cat C trees in with the others, and the order will be valid from the 
service date, except in abeyance for the cat C trees?

(This may be more obscure than the Christmas quiz, but I just thought 
I'd
ask...)

Ta, Edmund
