Just returned from a day that started with sunshine and ended with monsoon!
Many years ago Richard Nicholson brought into focus an LPA's power to make a 
TPO on a tree yet to be planted as a planning condition (he christened it a 
'CTPO' - no, nothing to do with Star Wars).
I confess that I have never encountered one, but I did speak to Mynors after 
the 2012 regs were enacted and he saw no reason why that power would have 
been removed.

Hello; some questions mainly for Tree Officers, I suppose, prompted by 
another incidence of post-planning enforcement period failure and/or 
disappearance of trees just a few more than five years on from 
completion of development.

1. Why is it that trees that shown on planting (and/or tree protection) 
plans approved to satisfy planning conditions, shouldn't be subject to 
an automatic default consideration of TPO status?
2. Is there a difference between a future amenity benefit sought from 
trees shown on an approved 'landscaping scheme' and the level of amenity 
necessarily attributable to a tree for a TPO outside the context of a 
planning development?
3. Shouldn't 'planning' shouldn't be far more discerning regarding the 
landscape elements of schemes that really merit conditioning for longer 
term benefit? Does a tree shown on an approved planting plan have only 
the same status in planning as, say, the daffodil bulb scheduled on the 
same plan to be planted nearby?

Any answers / thoughts gratefully received.

Kind regards
