Search for Tree Preservation Orders

Tree Preservation Orders (TPO’s) can relate to an individual tree or be for a group of trees.

To search using the online mapping system follow the general instructions on page one (link below)

Once on the online mapping system (Select Map if there is no Category displayed).  Next,  in  Category:  select NATURAL

Left click on the TREE PRESERVATION ORDERS text and the map will load. The map view is restricted so you then need to search using any of the three white boxes at the top of the map screen. Enter a street address, with or without a name/number. Then using the mouse pointer left click on FIND ADDRESS button.

On the form displayed choose an address near the tree and left click on Show at the left side of the table.

A map will then be drawn including that address. You may need to zoom out to look around the area. When you have found the area of the tree right click in the area surrounded by a green line. This will then bring up the records for that area.

Copies of the original TPO’s can be found here.  Using the information from the map, scroll down the page until you find the correct TPO and download it to your device.

Further information about  Trees and high hedges can be found here.

Trees in Conservation Areas have further controls on them even if not subject to a TPO. You can also see the Hyndburn Conservation areas on a following page.
