Tree Preservation Order 098/2023, Stanton Ford House, Stanton Ford, Calver, S32 3XF

The order was published on 26 October 2023.

In simple terms, no one is allowed to cut down, top or lop without our permission any of the trees described in the Schedule of the order and shown on the map.

This order lapsed on 29 April 2024

We have made the order because...

The tree is clearly visible from:

  • A623 Baslow Road

The loss of this mature tree would have a negative impact on the character of the landscape, the local environment and its enjoyment by the public.

The horse chestnut (T1) has high arboricultural value as a mature tree and has a high arboricultural and high amenity value due to its size and form. The tree makes a significant contribution to the character of the area and is therefore considered to be of sufficient public amenity and arboricultural quality to merit protection by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). There is also an important expediency argument for placing a TPO on this tree due to our understanding that the owner may wish to remove the tree.

The order came into force, on a temporary basis, on 26 October 2023, and will remain in force for six months. During this time we will decide whether the order should be given permanent status.

People affected by the order have a right to object or make comments on any of the trees or woodlands covered before we decide whether the order should be made permanent.

If you would like to make any objections or comments, please make sure we receive them in writing by 14 December 2023. Your comments must meet regulation 6 of the Town and Country Planning (Tree Preservation) (England) Regulations 2012 (see attachments). Please send your comments to Geoff Smith, Aldern House, Baslow Road, Bakewell, Derbyshire DE45 1AE. We will carefully consider all objections and comments before deciding whether to make the order permanent.

If you would like any more information or have any questions about this letter and notice, please contact Geoff Smith, address as above and telephone number 01629816217
