Reserved Matters requests discharge of condition 33, shows where fencing is to be installed and to what specification – all ignored in recent fencing installation

What we know so far about this new fence

  • The fencing was installed without permission and without a condition 33 discharge, since this was likely being sort in the reserved matters.
  • The fencing is not installed to the standard listed in the reserved matters document.
  • The fencing is not installed in the location listed in the reserved matters document. It is installed right next to the trees on the other side.
  • Part of Bramble lane is incorporated in the development, and does not make up part of the boundary.
  • The trees may be unfairly impacted, as stated in the planning document “the impact of the above can take years to show”.
  • The document lists out reasons that Tree protection fencing should be used.
  • If this new fence is temporary, removing it again in a few years may cause further damage to the trees and roots.
  • We can’t locate reference to this fencing they have installed in any of the documents and it is not shown on the plans.
