Tree work notifications 2021

The table below shows all notifications of work on trees in the Grange Conservation Area (TCO) and applications for work on trees that are subject to a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) anywhere in the Grange Association area, for which the initial application was made in 2021. TCO applicants are required to give six weeks’ notice of works, during which time the Council can decide to make a TPO. In the absence of a response before the TCO determination deadline, the works may proceed thereafter. More information about the application process is available from our planning guidance page.

For tree work notifications from prior years, tap on the year below:

Planning applications are tabulated separately.

Full details of each application can be accessed through the Council’s planning portal by tapping on the reference number in the left hand column of the table below (opens in new tab).

Grange Association comments sent to the Council, as well as comments posted on our forum, can be seen by tapping on the entry in the right hand column below (opens in new tab).

Tap on the column heading to sort the table by that column (ascending order); tap it again for descending order. (Default order – Application validated; date descending)
