Temporary fencing for the protection of all retained trees/hedges on site and trees outside the site whose Root Protection Areas fall within the site shall be erected in accordance with BS 5837:2012 (Trees in Relation to Design, Demolition and Construction) before development of any type commences, including site clearance, demolition, materials delivery, vehicular movement and erection of site huts. Any alternative fencing type or position not strictly in accordance with BS 5837 (2012) must be agreed in writing by the Local Planning Authority prior to the commencement of development.

Nothing should be stored or placed (including soil), nor shall any ground levels altered, within the fenced area without the previous written consent of the local planning authority. There shall be no burning of any material within 10 metres of the extent of the canopy of any retained tree/hedge.
