The 1APP form now requires a tree survey to be carried out for all developments where trees are present, and many local planning authorities are no longer even validating applications where a BS5837 survey is not submitted with the application.
Advanced Arboriculture produce clear, concise reports that meet the needs of the developer and the local planning authority tree officers. They are supplied electronically in PDF format for speed of delivery and easy sharing within a project team. All plans are produced in-house using AutoCAD.
Advanced Arboriculture encourages the use of pre-application meetings to provide guidance for developers and architects on maximising effective site use without encroaching into the root protection areas of retained trees. This iterative approach includes advice on engineering solutions and new landscaping in mitigation for tree loss.
