Our website is intended to provide information on the considerations and procedures required to meet the Ecological / Arboricultural requirements of the planning process. However, individual planning authorities and often individuals within planning authorities can differ slightly as to what they expect a planning applicant to provide for validation purposes.
Therefore, no website can replace talking directly to us -
