Hello We have gained planning permission for a replacement dwelling with an attached garage. Part of the garage sits within the RPAs of a Lime Tree (T3 - please refer to the attachment) and a series of Beech trees (G7). Please note, trees T1, T2 and T3 are subject to TPOs. Whilst the encroachment has been deemed acceptable by the Council’s Arboriculturist, we are seeking advice on where to navigate the surface water off the main house and garage. Obviously we would want the development to cause as little harm as possible to the Lime Trees, however, it seems as though we have no choice but to place the soakaway(s) within the RPAs of the Lime Trees. The question is then, is it generally acceptable to build soakaways within the RPAs of the Lime Trees? And if the answer is yes, does anyone have any suggestions as to where to place the soakaways for the front of the development? Many thanks Soakaway.pdf
I have recently bought a new house and there is a 15ft Yew outside my house (within the boundaries of my wall). It blocks light and I would like to either: - completely uproot it - trim it to about half the size I have been warned against both for different reasons. Someone told me not to completely remove it because it could cause the land to sink where the roots extend to (Its about 4m away from my front door). Also that the roots are sucking up lots of water which could lead to excess water beneath my house?? Also been told that cutting it back by half would be difficult and it could take years before it goes green again. What would you advise?
