TPO course - November 7th, Malvern

Paul Barton

Recommended Posts

Due to high demand, additional places have been made available for CAS members for this one day course hosted by Malvern Hills District Council. Led by Richard Nicholson, the course will cover the core principles for making effective Tree Preservation Orders, and administering them. It explores the role of local authority and consultant. There will be a special member offer for tree officers attending, and remember that you don't need to be a tree expert to benefit from the course. It is important that those involved in the process appreciate the parameters in which they operate. Cost is £60 + VAT for the seminar and £60 + VAT for those who also wish to complete the Lantra assessment, which is highly recommended for CAS members, and will qualify you for inclusion in the directory under the Tree Preservation category.


This One Day Course Covers:


The role of Section 197 and 198 of the Town & Country Planning Act

History of TPOs and key changes, including the 2012 Regulations

How to make a successful application

What makes a good TPO

How to object to a TPO

How to spot an unenforceable TPO

This will equip delegates to:


Check how to read a TPO document and challenge accuracy

Manage Area Orders

Undertake a TPO Review

Specify Tree work conditions • Enforce/avoid TPO offences • Pursue Appeals

For booking and enquiries please contact Mark Chester at [email protected]

Paul, just looked at website link, could I ask a couple of questions:


- it says Oct 7, I guess that is an error on website and course is this coming Friday Nov 7?


- Your post says open to CAS members, website seems to indicate it may be open to non members?


- website mentions TPO reviews which is an area I'm really interested in (not really a question but if there is discussion on this I'd be really keen to make the 400 mile journey if (a) there are still spaces and (b) it's open to non members??)


I'll try the contact number on Monday if you don't see this by then.


many thanks, Kevin
