I'd have liked to be a fly on the wall for this one:

 

https://www.rushmoor.gov.uk/tpo This page reads "Details of all the Tree
Preservation Orders (TPOs) in Aldershot and Farnborough" the key word being
"all"

 

Hort week reads "In mitigation, Kevin Izod, acting for Soufi, claimed that
although a TPO for the site had been registered in June 2016 and confirmed
in December that year, the confirmation document was not on the council's
website, so it would have been reasonable to assume the TPO had lapsed.

 

But the council said it does not have to place all TPOs and confirmation
documents on their website and developers are expected to make first-hand
checks directly with the land charges section on this, and said it had no
record of any such check. "

 

The confirmed TPOs on the council website now!
