Review of Tree Policy

Closes 7 Mar 2024

Opened 25 Jan 2024


The Council’s first Tree Policy was adopted in June 2020. The Policy was developed to provide policy guidance and a consistent approach to the planning, planting, monitoring, maintenance and protection and removal of trees on land that is actively managed by the Parks and Open Spaces Section of the Council.

An internal review has now been undertaken by the Council with only relatively minor changes being made.  Public feedback is now being sought on the reviewed Policy.

You are invited to read through the attached policy and provide feedback on any aspect of the document.  The feedback period will run from 25 January through until 7 March.

Draft Tree Policy
