Further to the article published on this site (scroll down to 9th May), the Planning Enforcement Officer at SBC has forwarded the following update:

"I can confirm to date we have had:

  • 15 positive responses confirming that missing trees have been replanted. 
  • 3 negative responses refusing to replant for various reasons
  • 180 is the total number of trees protected under TPO30
  • 62 trees identified as missing

I will be doing another survey to confirm the above status and will then be following up on those that either have not responded or have refused to replant. I will keep you updated of our progress.

As to enforcement, she continues: "....we prioritise in terms of the harm caused (similar in all these cases) and the likelihood of successful prosecution.  I will update you further once we have carried out the survey to confirm."
