TPO’s to be cut short

Proposals to simplify Tree Preservation Order paperwork has been announced by planning minister Bob Neill.

As part of the government’s drive to cut red tape, the proposal aims to consolidate the legal provisions currently contained in regulations and tree preservation orders (TPO’s) in England.

This move should save councils thousands in administration costs each year by using a shorter and easier to understand model order.
