BS5837 For Planning Purposes

If you intend to seek planning permission for a project on a site which contains, or is close to, trees, the local authority may require a survey of the trees as part of the application. A BS5837 tree survey covers construction, demolition, design and renovation and includes among other things the location of every tree as well as sizes, restrictions, management recommendations and health and safety assessments.

BS5837 surveys are important for anyone planning building work, whether you are a developer, architect, homeowner, planning consultant or builder.

This includes surveys for land owners or managers who have a legal duty to ensure trees are safe, as well as surveys for commercial premises in the Guildford, Reigate, Richmond and Southampton areas who must meet the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act.

Our tree condition surveys include a range of checks, such as identifying defects, disease or decay with services such as decay detection testing. We also assess the structural integrity of your trees.
