Another TPO dispute i'm afraid!

Another TPO dispute i'm afraid!

Postby Tarquin » Wed May 21, 2014 8:06 pm

Following discussions with our neighbours about a couple of scruffy towering shrublike monstrosities that border our garden but are on their land it was mutually agreed that they would benefit from some severe maintenance. The trees, not the neighbours although they are knocking on a bit. :wink:

Some work was carried out, leaving a significant amount of overhang which we put to the sword up to the boundary as we believed was our right. Somewhat surprisingly in light of earlier discussions the neighbours expressed their upset belieing the pruning to be too harsh and have now applied for a TPO so we'd like to know the following....

1. If the TPO is enforced does this mean they can let the tree/bush run rampant once more?
2. Is a formal application needed to touch the tree and if so is there a cost to this?
3. Is it only the owners who can make such an application?
4. Is it usual for neighbours to have issues with all 3 neighbours at once as this lot appear to be going for a hat-trick!? :mrgreen:

2. Is a formal application needed to touch the tree and if so is there a cost to this?

3. Is it only the owners who can make such an application?
