Hi Jonathan



Regulation 5(1) of the Town and Country Planning (Tree
Preservation)(England) Regulations 2012 provides that the notice must be
served  on the “persons interested” in the land affected by the order.

The phrase “person interested” is defined in Regulation 2. A person is
“interested” in land, for the purpose of these regulations, if he is:-

•             An owner of the land

•             An occupier of the land

•             Known to the authority to be entitled to cut down, lop or
top any of the trees to which the order relates

•             Known to the authority to be entitled to work by surface
working any minerals in, on or under the land affected by the order.



This means that when serving a TPO you should serve not only the owner and
occupier but also the following:-

•             If branches or roots from any of the trees encroach a
neighbouring property, the owner and occupier of that property

•             Any developer known to the LPA to be interested in
developing the land

•             Any tree surgeon, etc., whom the LPA know to have been
retained by the owner, occupier or developer to carry out works to any of
the trees

Any person known by the LPA to have rights to work minerals in, on or
under the land.



They ‘need’ to send a copy of the TPO and the Regulation 5 Notice. It
would be sensible to send a covering letter explaining how it all came
about, but I don’t think it is a statutory requirement.



Hope that helps



Alastair

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.
