And that old Area ones should lapse after 5 years? Should keep
you TOs busy....

There's an article online from the Isle of Wight, detailing the costs and
timescales when they updated all of their TPOs after DED. The costs,
financial and officer time, are staggering.

Hi Alastair. What do you think of the idea at 15.47 (4) which appears to
suggest that Area Orders have to be properly specified upon confirmation or
they lapse? And that old Area ones should lapse after 5 years? Should keep
you TOs busy..... And what would that do to the "Interim Preservation
Order" from 1943 that is supposedly still in force on one of my jobs?

For that matter where do they get the idea that Felling Licences,
conservation areas and TPOs "avoid overlapping control?" It seems to me
that the authors aren't entirely familiar with what goes on in the real
world... (Is Wales the real world?)

I've only scanned it and my comments on Welsh matters are of dubious merit
anyway, but it seems they're not changing much...

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
