Notification of proposed works to trees in conservation areas
In order to preserve and prevent undesirable changes to the character of our conservation area, you are required to submit a Notice of Intent to the Borough Council before carrying out any tree work, including pruning. The application form can be found on Basingstoke & Deane’s website and you need to complete this at least six weeks before any work starts. This gives the authority an opportunity to consider protecting the tree with a tree preservation order.
If you deliberately destroy a tree in a conservation area, or damage it in a manner likely to destroy it, you could be liable to a fine. You could also be fined if you cause or permit such work. The conservation area in Sherfield on Loddon covers a large proportion of the village. A map of the area can be found by visiting the Environment & Planning section (Conservation) of Basingstoke & Deane’s website.
In a conservation area you do not need to give notice of work on a tree less than 7.5 centimetres in diameter, measured 1.5 metres above the ground (or 10 centimetres if thinning to help the growth of other trees).
