This is a large house for this corner plot.
When it is complete there will not be much land left remaining within the property boundary for the planting of the 14 trees required for mitigation under the Bristol Tree Replacement Standard
There are no landscape plans submitted with this application. Sometimes these are left to a later stage. Sometimes this is because the plan is to provide tiny trees not capable of growing to anything like what is required to compensate for the damage to the environment caused by felling trees, or even there is a wish to plant hedges and shrubs and count them as "trees".
This comment is just to say that hedges and shrubs are not acceptable as mitigation for the loss of trees.
Also I ask the Tree Officer to ensure that trees being retained are not in such a position that they will be felled in the immediate years following occupation because they have been retained too close to the building - something that occurs at times to avoid the expense of off-site mitigation for tree loss.
Trees are shown in the proposed site plan, but these are trees that are already growing on the land.
I ask the Tree and Planning Officers to ensure that the BTRS is honoured and that, if they agree that 14 trees are required in mitigation, that these are real "trees" and nothing else, some or all planted off-site on public land if that is what is required to fulfil the Planning Obligation.
