A TPO was placed on our tree our back garden ( not usually done ) in 2004. No consultation,no site visit, all paperwork wrong, wrong house,road,map. We did not respond. 4 months later TPO confirmed, my house scribbled in place, map changed 1 month later. No oportunity of commenting on our tree, except via the high court ! Is this legal? The tree is now a monster, we wish to have it profesionally lopped, tree officer will only allow relatively minor works. Tree blights neighbours, can we lop the tree to Abate and Prevent a Nuisance to preserve their Common Law Rights without consulting LPA? Mynors says we can.
