I am an Arboricultural Planning Consultant covering an area including Dorset, Devon, Somerset, Wiltshire, Bath, Bristol and Hampshire.

I specialise in the technical aspects of trees and Planning, based on site specific investigation and setting my recommendations against the requirements of 1990 Town and Country Planning Act, the Local Authority Local Plan, the National Planning Policy Framework and British Standard 5837:2012. 
Oak Tree

I provide quality tree surveys, analysis and assessment of proposals for planning purposes, including tree valuation and assessments of canopy cover changes. I identify tree-related impacts that might arise and provide recommendations on how to avoid, mitigate or compensate for them.

With over 30 years’ experience managing the Planning arboricultural function, I have been involved in many appeals. Appeals can be lodged not only against the refusal of Planning permission but also the refusal of consent to carry out work to a tree with a tree preservation order.

The assessment and mitigation of changes to canopy cover on a site are becoming increasingly important. These changes can be assessed and the contribution of mitigation planting for the future restoration and increase in canopy cover can be calculated.

I can also assist where a LPA requires tree valuation calculations for off-site contributions such as the Dorset Council BMEP.
