Thanks Dave,

Interesting wording, I may borrow some of it!

Hi Jonathan,

Our LPA will send out a formal letter to the original person notifying
(not technically applying) for the work and at the same time we would
always strive to serve the TPO so there is no gap between the response to
the 211 and the TPO.

The guidance clearly states that:

A section 211 notice is not, and should not be treated as, an application
for consent under an Order. So the authority cannot:

refuse consent; or
grant consent subject to conditions.

Our wording is as follows:

No objections - The Council has acknowledged receipt of this Section 211
Notice (i.e. 6 weeks prior notification of works to trees within a
Conservation Area) and will take no further action with regard to
preventing nor directing the specified works.  In other words, this tree/s
are not, at the present time and in respect to these notified works only,
to be made the subject of a Tree Preservation Order.  Therefore the
following work may proceed:

Objection and TPO - The Council has acknowledged receipt of this Section
211 Notice (i.e. 6 weeks prior notification of works to trees within a
Conservation Area) and have determined to make the tree subject to a Tree
Preservation Order.  Therefore the following work may not proceed:

I have heard of LPAs sending out the letter objecting and confirming that
they are going to TPO the tree, but not necessarily doing it immediately -
what the acceptable gap is between the end of the six week period and the
serving of the TPO, is anyone's guess.  To avoid any confusion or room for
'error' we would always do them simultaneously.  Speaking personally, we
make very few TPOs as a result of 211s and prefer to work with the
notifier, often the concern about having a TPO slapped on is sufficient for
them to reconsider felling (when we consider this is excessive or damaging
to viz amenity) and go for lesser works.

Hope this helps.

Morning all,

Hope everyone is safe and well?

When serving a TPO, specifically in response to a S211 notification to
which the planning authority objects, what MUST they send out to whom, and
what MIGHT they send out if they were minded to be helpful?   It's not a
quiz, but a genuine enquiry for your understanding of the process and
procedure, thank you.
