TPO top trumps

I think I know that the TPO is top trump in this scenario but thought I'd
seek other opinions.

I have an enquiry from someone has been given written permission from the
Council to fell a tree on council land subject to conditions about it being
wholly at their cost, replacement planting, contractor insurance cover etc.

A little later, on submission of a planning application for building
extension, the Council (albeit a different department) served a TPO. The
Order was also served on the tree officer who had written giving permission
for the felling.

I guess the TPO overrules the original permission?
