Does anyone have a link to section 198 Town and Country planning act 1990 covering public amenity value of trees?


Many thanks

It's pretty basic. Just 5 words. "in the interests of amenity"


Tree preservation orders E+W

198 Power to make tree preservation orders. E+W

(1) If it appears to a local planning authority that it is expedient in the interests of amenity to make provision for the preservation of trees or woodlands in their area, they may for that purpose make an order with respect to such trees, groups of trees or woodlands as may be specified in the order.

(2) An order under subsection (1) is in this Act referred to as a “tree preservation order”.

(3 to 4) revoked

(5) A tree preservation order may be made so as to apply, in relation to trees to be planted pursuant to any such conditions as are mentioned in section 197(a), as from the time when those trees are planted.

(6) revoked
