Ha ha - fair question Alistair!

I didn’t see I was cagey, just that I don’t reveal all the background reasons 
for making the enquiry!  I have a collection of friendly but ambiguous stock 
phrases when quizzed!

Not that I'd ever ask why, because it's fairly obvious, but isn't being 
cagey about it more likely to illicit a new TPO response? 😉

In the past I have had clients ask me not to check about TPOs as they have 
been concerned that a phone call with the tree officer may trigger a new 
TPO!

I agree that there’s no excuse for not checking when LPAs have records of 
CAs and TPOs online, but in the past I have experienced some tree officers 
probing as to why I want to know (to which I have to politely decline to 
expand on the enquiry) - clearly because they are concerned about 
pre-emptive felling etc.

It’s a problem that seems to stem from a combative approach to planning 
between some developers and planning officers.

Kind regards,

Could anyone advise as to why I appear to be receiving an increasing 
number of AIA's stating that no checks have been carried out with the 
Local Planning Authority as to whether trees within the site are TPO'd or 
lie within a Conservation Area particularly as BS5827:2012 clearly states 
at 5.2.3 that the presence of TPO's and Conservation Areas is a factor to 
be taken into account and are a material consideration (Annex B).

I understand that Consultants may have some difficulty in obtaining this 
information, particularly if its not online and there are tight 
timescales, but it can become a little embarrassing when I have to tell 
the applicant that his trees are TPO'd and his Consultant has not.
