Freedom of Information Request

TPO - Shell Petrol Station, Barnet

Received: 11 June 2019

Is the response below for real, in reply to my query asking for details of which trees are protected on a site (see e-mail chain below)?

To send a letter confirming that trees on a site are protected, but then not making any attempt to define the number of trees protected, the type of Order and the reference number of the TPO is completely unhelpful, to the point of ridiculous.

Does a tree owner in Barnet now just get a 'yes the trees are protected, but you need to come in to the office or pay a fee to get the details of what actually is protected'?

To make it clear I do not (at this stage) want a copy of the TPO, merely confirmation of what is protected within the area highlighted on the attached aerial photograph.

I can just about (although not quite) understand the charge for an e-mailed TPO plan and schedule, but surely you must be able to confirm the type, age and reference number of the TPO and also clarify which or how many trees within the area I have highlighted are subject of the Order?

Your clarification would be most welcome.

[Clarification] my request is for the details of any tree preservation order in place on the trees located in the area shown on the aerial photo previously submitted (and attached again here). In order for me to have all details of the level of protection I require either a full copy of any TPO's that exist within the highlighted area,or alternatively a copy of the TPO plan/s and the FirstSchedule/s.
