How do i stand, submitted a CA on the planning Portal and received a conformation that it had been sent to the council, checked the council website as they are now out of time, before we start work(light pruning) and its not there? crack on or ring the tree officer?

It needs to be validated by the council first so I would call them.

Where does it say it needs to be validated? Conservation area is 6 weeks notice. Notify then crack on IMO.

It needs to be valid (i.e.contain the right information), but there's no such thing as the Council validating it. If you have confirmation of receipt and are satisfied that it was a valid notice and the 6 weeks are up, go right ahead and do the work.

 

Councils are required to keep a register of CA notices, few do and even fewer publicise them on their websites.

The above is correct about 6wks notice, but might be a good idea to contact the TO and check. I find being on good professional terms with the TO's and not a 'chancer' helps when you occasionally need their help. Just my way of working. jan.

It doesn't but it still needs to be Valid and accepted by the council hence it needs to be validated. All my councils will send a validation letter out and its then 6 weeks from validation date, you cant just chuck an email in and count the days from that day, well you can but its a dangerous game!

An s211 can contain any information you care to include, it doesn't matter what drivel you put in it. There is no validation process because there is no duty to include any information which could then be assessed to see if it meets the non-existant validation requirements. The clock starts ticking the first full day after the notice is served irrespective of the information, or lack of, in the notice.

 

Of course you should provide sufficient information to identify the tree, and an accurate description of the proposed works. Failure to do so could result in prosecution if you then relied on the s211 to undertake work to the tree. If you haven't provided sufficient information the Council should write asking for the necessary information. But, the clock is ticking.

 

I would contact the tree officer just to check all's well. An email would provide a record of your enquiry, and include a line along the lines of, if I do not hear from you within 5 working days, that is by the _ _/_ _/_ _ I will undertake the works set out in my notice Ref.xxxxx.

Ok so validation is probably the wrong word, what I mean is I want confirmation that the council has got the notification, like attached. I always get on of these and insist on it, councils are a law to them selves and I cover my arse very well! IMG_0038.jpgIMG_0038.jpg
