Objection to a Tree Preservation Order - 24 Eldon Road

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Executive Director of Economic Growth and Neighbourhood Services submitted a report on an objection to Tree Preservation Order No. 4/22 relating to 24 Eldon Road.  A copy of the TPO plan was attached to the report at Appendix 1.


The report noted that the property sat within the Eldon Square Conservation Area and that six weeks prior notification was required to be submitted to the Local Planning Authority where tree works were proposed within a Conservation Area.  On 24 June 2022, a Notice of intention to fell the Monterey cypress had been received.  Officers had not accepted the reasons for felling as being justified and considered the tree to provide high amenity value, contributing to the Conservation Area.  A TPO had been served on 27 July 2022 in order to prevent the felling and a copy of the formal response was attached to the report at Appendix 2.


The report summarised an objection to the TPO that had been made by the neighbour at 22 Eldon Place and set out officer comments in response.  It concluded that the TPO was warranted and did not unduly impact on the objector’s property, with there being scope to prune the tree to alleviate concerns.  The recommendation was therefore to confirm the TPO.


Resolved –


          That the Tree Preservation Order be confirmed.
