The plan provided fails to identify exactly the tree referred to. The plan provided is inadequate.
If it is the southern-most of seven trees planted in the car parking area behind the house then we challenge the applicant to prove the tree belongs to them as they state. It does not appear to be associated with this property.
If this is the Beech growing near the corner of College Rd and Ashley Down Road, then this tree is protected by a TPO - TPO-695-T18 - https://bristoltrees.space/
It is the Council's stated policy not to prune trees merely because of shading or because they obstruct light. The same policy should apply to privately owned trees, especially to trees protected by a TPO where the pruning is likely to reduce its amenity value and destroy the reason why a TPO was granted in the first place.
We oppose this application.
