Government guidance requires that Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) should only be served on trees and woodlands where their removal would have a significant negative impact on the enjoyment of the local landscape by the public. Authorities are required to develop means of assessing amenity value (as defined above) in a structured and consistent way

This policy details the process for the review of trees within Torbay for the potential serving of new TPOs.
