I'm not sure how this works in Scotland Jon, but in England if you want to 
actually change the site boundary of a planning permission, then it's not an 
amendment, it's an entirely new application. Bit of a faff, which is why I 
suggested just applying for the licence.

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.
