Much agreed, and as said, should be based on the tree officers advice on a 
case to case and needs basis. I dislike cathartic reaction TPOs especially 
those made to be obstructive. They always fail in the long-term. TPOs should 
not be treated like a bag of sweets. In the words of Lord Mynors, "You should 
only protect special trees. If all trees were treated as special, then none 
would be so."

I imagine that all LPAs will consider the use of TPOs in this context from 
time to time, as they are empowered to do, but TPOs are, and should be 
considered in site-specific terms.
To use them in a manner that might be construed as "automatic" would run the 
risk of legal challenges or successful appeals.

The making of a TPO to cover agreed landscaping schemes on proposed 
development sites is something I previously investigated in another 
employment.  No issues from the LPAs perspective other than concerns being 
raised by the 'powers that be' about it potentially putting off new buyers !

I left that organisation (not because of that!) but have picked it up with my 
current employer.  In fact I'm including it as a suggestion being put forward 
as part of my LPAs wider current Government consultation on the NPPF/National 
Design Code (deadline 27 March 2021).

Let's see if it gets any traction.

Paul
