NPPF2 paragraph 44 Sean. Information requirements should be
proportional..... As the guy is completely within his rights to cut down
his Leyland hedge then I don't see this as being reasonable. Although you
say the row has got a TPO if it's a hedge it's a bit dubious. Whatever the
case a Bat survey and EIA seem rather excessive.
I consider you're to be commended for looking out for the tree-owner's
expenses.

The authorities round here seem to ask for EIA/bat survey for everything.
I don’t know how you could argue that there would be no impact if eg bats
are present as you say, without commissioning such a survey yourself, so it
is a bit of a catch-22

Good morning, just had an interesting request come across and was
wondering if anyone else had experience of this.

For both a TPO application - (a row of laylandii) an environmental impact
assessment has been requested/intimated at being needed.

Minor development - refurbishment of derelict building to single dwell
house.  Not a big site, no clear indicators from walking the site but there
are bats etc. in the area.

Both are not major impact development, I'm aware that species are
protected separately so with or without permission if disturbed a criminal
offence has occurred.
I just don’t want to put a resident through a reasonable expense and delay
to a potential application without good reason and a sound legislative
backing.  Yes I'm going to run it through our legal but as with everything
people want answers yesterday.

So I was wondering out there in tree officer world is anyone else running
this as standard for minor apps and TPO apps ?
