Felling Permission versus Planning Consent

I can't give you chapter & verse for Scotland, but you have outlined a
situation where the council has conditioned visibility splays "outside of
the boundaries". So if the condition applies "outside of the boundaries" the
implication is that planning permission has been granted on an area wider
than just the site itself.

 

I would go back to the application form & see what the plan submitted shows.
If it doesn't cover the sitka too a possible modification might be useful. I
assume that the visibility splays are required for access that is to run
through the sitka? I think that you want planning permission to cover the
whole area and if this is granted then the need for a felling licence should
evaporate.
