Trees and Conservation Areas
The information within these map layers is indicative only. If you are intending to carry out any works to trees then you should contact the Tree Team at Eastleigh Borough Council first to confirm the protection status of the tree(s), if you do not then you risk prosecution if the tree is protected by virtue of a TPO or because it is located within a Conservation Area.
Tree Preservation Orders
A TPO makes it a criminal offence to cut down, top, lop, uproot, wilfully damage or wilfully destroy a tree protected by that order, without the LPA’s permission. Anyone found guilty of such an offence is liable to prosecution. Removal of deadwood and cutting ivy are exempt from requiring permission.
If a tree is in a Conservation Area you are required to submit a notification of intent to the LPA of any proposed work, describing what you want to do. The application process is covered in more detail within the Tree Services section. Normal TPO procedures apply if the tree is already protected by a TPO. You do not need to give notice if the tree is less than 7.5 centimetres in diameter when measured 1.5 metres above the ground.
