I concur with Bill. I have seen trenches dug close to the same Limes twice 
over a 20 year period severing a huge number of roots.
Despite my complaints to my B&CE colleagues the trees did not bat an eyelid 
and continued growing and survived the 87 storm!

Here in Sheffield Paul, Highways and Planning might just as well be on 
different planets; getting the two departments to sing from the same carol 
sheet (note the passing acknowledgement of the season there?) is nigh on 
impossible. So I'd ignore the problem, especially if a neighbouring property 
were allowed to drop their kerbs. The only tree-related comment I'd make is 
that Limes seem to tolerate an awful lot of quite horrible street-related 
damage, so they'll probably survive.

Christmas already here folks, scorching central Otago day but we're 
still persisting with the full roast turkey dinner. All the best to 
everyone on the forum and a merry Christmas.

Subject: Drop kerbs

I've a site with a proposed residential dwelling, unfortunately, the 
architect also proposes a couple of drop kerbs in the public footpath 
outside leading into the access driveway. The kerb would be sited 
within the RPA of two nice mature lime trees which sit in the 
footpath. Drop kerbs have been installed in the same area, some ten 
years ago and very close to similar trees along the road and he's 
hoping this will help the application. I've dealt with drop kerbs 
before and viewed them with a cautious eye, consequently, I told those 
architects it would be difficult to convince planners that it could be 
done sympathetically. Has anyone experience, or produced a method statement 
for this...?
