Hi Jonathan,

There are two immediate powers afforded local authorities:
S.154 of the Highway Act 1990 
https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1980/66/section/154 ; and,
S.23 and 24 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 
https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1976/57/section/23

If you want interpretation of the Misc. Prov. Act, I am pretty familiar with 
it.

Regards,

Ron Howe
Tree Officer (Planning)
Mole Valley District Council

Dear all,

Are there powers available that will require a tree owner to remove a tree 
that has been assessed by someone to be "dangerous" to third parties?

I know about S215 of the TCPA, but I don't think it applies to a dangerous 
tree, does anyone know different?

Does the HSE have any powers?

Or is it simply a civil matter?

Jonathan
