TREES ONLINE *IOW*

Post by Angelisle » Sun Sep 18, 2005 9:47 am

Thanks to the Internet, with the Trees Online Project the Isle of Wight is leading the country in giving access to information about protected trees. Residents can now see any tree protection in their neighbourhood, find out the TPO’s reference number and even see the species that is protected. It is also possible to view the actual TPO’s document. There is even a digital map which allows searches for any address, but results will only show trees protected by TPO’s it is not conclusive as trees can be protected by other things, such as being in a Conservation Area. Who know's it could also be available on your own Local Authority Website, well worth checking out. Some of the information on the website may be universal and apply in relation to other areas of the country, that said I will be having a good look as this information, if available over the Country, could also determine, future prospective purchase of property.

Had to give this a plug as Trees Online has been cited by the government as an national example of local authority ‘best practice’

Sorry to trump you but others have been doing this for quite a while now.

Thanks Treeman, that was in our local paper on Friday it goes to show you cannot rely on the power of the press to get things right. Perhaps next week we will read that someone has invented the wheel and that we no longer require the donkey in the back garden for our electricity :lol:

Why do you need wheels in the IOW? You can walk anywhere you want. Only 2 streets, isn't there?
see ya!!

To cycle! :P It's a beautiful island and well worth taking a bike over on the ferry.

It's a pity the use of technology by the island council hasn't crossed the little bit of water to our LA! ;)

Me too Beech, but I'm often shocked by the speed the technology it has taken over at the Council. its a shame they do not promote it a little more in the schools and the community. :(
