Thanks for the replies.

The full  planning consent has gone through so I can't imagine the client will be too keen on changing the application boundary and resubmitting.

Jon- yes, the belt of Sitka is outwith the planning boundary and the access has been routed though an existing gap in the trees to the road.

I'm fine with making an application for the felling permission but it seems like we are adding another layer of bureaucracy to the planning process. I've never come across this before and it doesn't seem reasonable.

Kind regards

Callum

I hesitate to introduce logic to the TCPA but if an LPA were to separate the 
two it would be a bit non-sensical.
In my experience resolved highway vision splays are a material consideration 
in the planning process.

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.
