Town and country planning - Trees - Preservation order - Appeal - Claimant arguing that local planning authority failing to undertake adequate survey and using inaccurate map - Whether order oppressive and unnecessary.
There was no statutory requirement that a local planning authority carry out a survey before implementing a tree preservation order. As a matter of common sense, in practice, it was not possible to form a view of the matter without carrying out some form of survey; however a claim that that a survey had been perfunctory, even if established, could not lead to the conclusion that the order was invalid as a matter of law.
