Dear Middlesbrough Council,

1) How many Tree Preservation Orders have the council served that are still valid (i.e. excluding those that have been revoked). If establishing the number that have been revoked is problematic please let me know how many have been served.

2) If you have a spreadsheet listing the TPOs please provide it.

3) How old is the oldest TPO that is still valid (i.e. which year was it served in)

Yours faithfully,
Jon Heuch
