Tree Preservation Order - 112 Portland Road, Hucknall PDF 169 KB
Members were advised that one
objection had been received in response to the making of a Tree
Preservation Order at 112 Portland Road, Hucknall.
that having considered and
notwithstanding the letter of objection, the Council proceed to
confirm the Tree Preservation Order without modification, on the
terms as outlined in the report.
The tree in question is
considered to contribute to the visual amenity of the surrounding
area, and its removal would be detrimental to the character of the
area. The tree is adjacent to the
public highway of Portland Road, which is one of the main
thoroughfares through Hucknall. The
tree has been inspected by a fully qualified arboriculturist and
demonstrates sound health and structural stability, all qualities
which warrant TPO status.
The removal of, or uneven
pruning works to the tree in question, would severely reduce the
visual amenity benefit that the tree currently provides. The tree
was heavily pruned before the provisional Order was placed, and
therefore the permanent placement of the Order will allow regulated
pruning and management of the tree to help maintain the trees
aesthetic appearance. If the tree is not protected there is no
other statutory control other than the issuing of a felling licence
by the Forestry Commission that could limit or control the removal
of the tree in question.
It is considered that the
placing of a Tree Preservation Order on the tree is in the
interests of public amenity.
