Quick Contact

Planning applications in the South of England must include an arboricultural impact assessment (AIA). This determines how construction impacts trees either onsite or nearby, as well as how trees will affect the finished structure. With 20+ years of experience, the team at Arbor Cultural Ltd carries out AIAs for every kind of requirement, helping you to achieve your goals as a developer, architect, planning consultant or general builder working on one or multiple sites of any size.

We also work with homeowners with property extension projects.

What Are Arboricultural Impact Assessments?

AIAs are a key part of the planning process on construction projects and inform around the development process. The assessment involves determining tree health and the effect of development in accordance with BS5837. When providing AIAs, we identify the long-term value and benefits of trees in urban environments. We promote the importance of this message as a key aspect of the Arbor Cultural Ltd vision.

To arrange an assessment, or to find out more about public speaking where we teach interested groups and parties about the intrinsic value of trees, please contact us today.

What Does an AIA Involve?

When undertaking an AIA, our specialists carry out a thorough survey and inspection of all trees on your site and those nearby. AIAs cover a range of checks and recommendations.

These include:

  • An assessment of tree quality, taking arboricultural, landscape, cultural or ecological values into account
  • Potential conflicts between trees and developments, such as shading issues or breaching a root protection area
  • Advice on infrastructure requirements for highways and road access, visibility, lighting, CCTV and services
  • Tree management recommendations such as remedial health, safety works and future arboricultural management
  • Guidance on which trees to retain and remove on sites in Richmond, Cobham, Southampton, Guildford and Cranleigh
  • Mitigation for tree removal and recommendations on protection measures to implement during construction
  • Arboricultural impact assessments to consider the impact of statutory designations or restrictions, such as TPOs

Following an AIA, we present the report in a professional manner and include tree constraint as well as tree protection plans. Dedicated to helping you achieve all your goals, we can provide comprehensive reporting and clear drawings to maximise your own chances of obtaining planning permission.
