The request was partially successful.

Kent Tree Surveys

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1) How many Tree Preservation Orders have the council served that are still valid (i.e. excluding those that have been revoked). If establishing the number that have been revoked is problematic please let me know how many have been served.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

Dear Telford and Wrekin Council,

I am unclear what you mean - the concept of a "timeframe" has no relevance to any of my three questions. You are possibly confused with tree work applications?

The council will have served Tree Preservation Orders - legal documents since the 1940s, possibly earlier. Some of these may have been revoked or unconfirmed, but that is not the purpose of my questions. My first question concerns the number of TPOs that the council has served.

The second question asks if you hold a register of TPOs in a spreadsheet format that you could pass on. This register would typically list each TPO with one TPO on each line of the spreadsheet.

The third question asks how old the oldest TPO is.

I hope this clarifies my questions.

Yours faithfully,
Jon Heuch
