|Condition Details / Information Notes
|The work must be carried out within two years from the date of this permission.
Reason: As trees continue to grow, altering in shape and size, some works granted consent may become inappropriate and will require up to date assessment.|
|All wild bird species are legally protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended) from any form of disturbance between the onset of nest building and until such time as any dependent young have left the nest, principally from the beginning of March to the end of August.|
|All species of bats and their roosts (whether the bats are present or not) are protected from reckless killing, disturbance or destruction under both national and European legislation. Cracks, cavities and holes in trees and buildings can provide suitable places for bats to rest or hibernate; these should be carefully inspected prior to carrying out any works. If bats are discovered during work on trees or are suspected of being present, the relevant work should be halted and Natural England (formerly English Nature) notified and further advice sought (http://www.naturalengland.org.uk/).

Also, to encourage best practice when planning and carrying out tree works and to ensure that the tree works are carried out in as safe a manner as is possible. Any professional tree worker will have a good understanding of this British Standard and will ensure that their working methods are compliant with it.|
|It is recommended that the works are carried out by a suitably qualified tree professional. This is to ensure, as far as is possible, that damage to the tree or neighbouring trees, property and associated services is avoided and to ensure, as far as is possible, the adherence to best practice in the planning and execution of the tree works and the use of safe operational procedures.|
