Dev. Affecting Trees, Hedges & Woodlands Policy NE5 Development Affecting Trees, Hedges and Woodlands Development will not be permitted if it would damage or destroy trees protected by a Tree Preservation Order or in a Conservation Area unless the removal would: 1 Be in the interests of good arboricultural practice; or 2 The need for the development outweighs the amenity value of the protected trees. If the removal of any trees is permitted as part of a development, a condition may require that an equivalent number (or more) of new locally native trees be planted either on or near the site.
