If the proposal involves any works that would affect any trees within the application site, for example, the felling of a tree or the pruning or lopping of branches, or if the proposal involves any new planting, landscaping details and plans will be required.
Landscaping plans should accurately show:
- The position and spread of the existing trees.
- Details of any trees to be retained and measures to be taken to protect the trees.
- The species of the trees and details of their condition.
- An indication of which, if any, are to be felled.
- Details of the size, species and positions of trees to be planted and boundary treatments.
In many instances the submission of landscaping details can be a condition of the planning permission. In some cases specialist detail, for example a tree survey or detailed design may be required when submitting landscaping schemes. It is recommended that you discuss with officers the scope and detail required prior to submission.
