REQUEST A TPO
Firsly, what is a TPO? It's the shorthand for 'Tree Preservation Order'. It is a shield against greedy developers and planners alike and helps keep the tree in the ground! If there is a tree near you that you really like and you want to help keep it safe then request a TPO. It's very simple and the form I have created should help. There are a few things that might surprise you about TPO's - below is a summary:
- Any trees in an Exeter City Council park / green space are exempt from TPO's.
- The Planning team within the Exeter City Council deal with all TPO's.
- If a tree is diseased or unsafe (or will be) then a TPO will not be applied.
- A TPO can be removed if the tree is diseased, unsafe or if full planning permission is approved.
- Any works to be carried out on a tree with a TPO will require approval from the planning team.
Now that you have a better picture of what a TPO is the next step is to request it. You can do this by either sending an email directly to the planning team on firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the form below.
