There’s no re-leaf

The procedure for appealing a Tree Preservation Order (“TPO”) in Wales is changing from 5 May 2017 following the coming into force of The Town and Country Planning (Trees) (Amendment) (Wales) Regulations 2017.

These Regulations will affect any Welsh parks with trees which are subject to a TPO.

Following this date, if you wish to make an appeal to the Secretary of State relating to a TPO you must comply with the following obligations:

  • You must provide an appeal notice which must be accompanied by a full statement of case. Your statement of case should contain the full particulars of your appeal and any supporting documents on which you are relying.
  • Your statement of case and appeal notice should then be provided to the Local Planning Authority as soon as reasonably possible.
