Search for Tree Preservation Orders

Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) 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 Natural in the Maps list)

Left click on the TREE PRESERVATION ORDERS text and the map will load.

The map view is restricted so search by using the binocular icon towards the top of the screen. Enter a street address, or Post Code  with or without a name/number and use the Search button and a list of addresses will appear.

On the form displayed, choose an address, double click on the required address and the map will move to that address and highlight the particular address.

A map will then be drawn including that address. If there is a TPO the address will be outlined by a green line.

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 select the “i” icon towards the top left of the map screen by clicking once. Then left click on the required part of the map area surrounded by a green line. This will then bring up the records for that area.

Copies of the original TPOs can be found here.   Detailed instructions for general searching can be found here: Planning application search 06 October 2023 v2. 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.
