Tree work notifications 2022

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 2022. 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 other years, tap here, then on the year below:

Planning applications are tabulated separately.
