Well this is very interesting (for sad people like me), thanks Bettina. I 
assume this is what Charles Mynors has been working on lately?

From the consultation paper summary for our little bit on trees -

15.5 (AD) Remove the nuisance exemption? That sounds reasonable. Make an 
application and prove your case. If the Council doesn't allow the tree to be 
removed when the evidence is proven then they are liable for compensation as 
is already the case presumably.

15.6 (AD) Undertake works to a sapling without consent provided it is below a 
certain size - ok, so what about the systematic depletion of a protected 
woodland by the removal of saplings? I can see a problem with this one - the 
devil will be in the detail.

15.7 (AD) At least this will force tardy LPAs to respond to simple requests 
regarding trees within a reasonable timescale.

15.9 (AD) Can we have this in England too please!!!

15.10 (AD) I like both of these recommendations. Simplifies the process and 
allows the validity/availability of the order to be questioned outside the 
High Court (in certain circumstances).

15.11 (AD) I like these ideas too. Makes things easier for all concerned.


Stephanie, in the unlikely event that you are reading this thread between 
Christmas and New Year, do you have any views on these proposals?

Cheers

Alastair
