No this is not an appeal.

The history to the site is that once the developers owned the land they quickly felled all the big trees. The LC then put a temporary TPO on what was left on site. No more work has been done on any trees until this proposal.

Might have to wait until things have progressed a bit, although it does seem as though they are claiming the effects of shading and trespass were unforeseen.

Have they been specific about the root protection zone, usually it's no plant or machinery, sometimes it's location and type of fence.

Sounds like the developer moved quickly to try and avoid the effects of TPOs - this does not endear you to councils however. Doubtless more would have been saved if at all possible. The council probably look at the whole stand of trees rather than the individual tree per se when determining the extent of the TPOs. Who knows there may be historic reasons for protecting this area of trees - they could be the remains of an ancient parish boundary marker site with specific links to Rogation Sunday events.
