Arboricultural Planning and Development

Arboricultural Planning and Development

Offering a wealth of experience working on householder and major planning applications, ARC Arboricultural finds the balance between conservation and development requirements.

Trees are a material planning consideration on any development project.


Whether or not they’re protected, any trees ‘on or adjacent to’ your site are subject to an arboricultural report. This is required to validate a planning application and to assist planning officers in their determinations. Without arboricultural information, your planning application can be held up.


ARC works with clients’, architects and engineers to find a pragmatic balance between the conservation of existing trees, new planting, and the development requirements. Our approach is to find innovative and creative solutions to challenges as we encounter them. ARC will always deliver your project in accordance with BS 5837 2012 “Trees in Relation to Demolition, Design and Construction”.


Should your planning application be refused due to tree issues, ARC can provide expert advice, guidance and the relevant information required to discharge conditions and provide site monitoring.
