Decision details

Tanglewood, Gazeley Lane

Decision Maker: Planning

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee received an application to confirm, not to confirm, or confirm subject to modifications the Tree Preservation Order (TPO) 182016 for Tanglewood, Gazeley Lane, Trumpington.


Members were asked to decide whether to confirm the TPO as is, confirm the TPO with modification or not confirm the TPO.


Members were recommended that the TPO be confirmed without modification.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the TPO from a local resident.


The representation covered the following concerns:

       i.          Trees provided amenity value but this did not mean they needed TPOs.

     ii.          Reasons given for imposing the TPOs were not applicable so there was no need for the TPO.

   iii.          Referred to assessment information in the Officer’s report. Suggested the trees were not of sufficient amenity value to warrant protection from TPOs.


The Committee received a representation in support of the TPO from residents of Gazeley Road.


The representation covered the following concerns:

       i.          Took issue with details in the Objector’s report.

     ii.          Concern about multiple planning applications affecting the site and this could lead to loss of trees.

   iii.          The trees were healthy and needed protection.


The Committee:


Unanimously resolved to accept the officer recommendation and grant permission to confirm the TPO that was the subject of the application.
