Tree Preservation Orders Digital Format

The request was successful.

Dear Westminster City Council,

Is the council's set of Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) indexed in digital form?

If so, please may I have a copy of all the data relating to TPOs from any databases you hold regarding them. One or more CSV exports would be ideal.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Wilde

Dear Nita

Thank you for your swift reply and the information provided it is greatly appreciated. Specifically what I am looking for is the GIS data for trees subject to TPOs. This data is commonly used by councils for mapping purposes and is usually available as a shapefile or longitude and latitude. Could I get that if possible?

Yours sincerely,

Mr Wilde

Dear Nita

Just a quick email, any progress with the GIS data for the trees subject to TPOs? Often this data is used by councils for their interactive maps and is usually in the format of a shapefile or CSV file with longitude and latitude.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Wilde

Nita Shah, Westminster City Council

Dear Mr Wilde
 
I apologise for the lateness of this response.

The Council is currently in the process of creating the data in the
 format requested, but it is not yet wholly accurate, and is subject to
checking.  When it is accurate it will be made publicly accessible via the
website.

Dear Nita

Not a problem, thank you for the update and all your help with this enquiry so far. I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Hi Nita

I hope you are well? Just wondering if the GIS data for the trees subject to TPO's is available yet?

Yours sincerely,

Mr Wilde

Dear Mr Wilde
 
Thank you for your e-mail.

Unfortunately the Tree Team is currently short staffed, therefore, this is
a project which will need to be prioritised when staffing levels have been
resolved.  I regret to say I cannot provide a definite date by which I
expect this to be completed.

Hi Nita

Thank you for the update it is greatly appreciated. I completely understand and thank you so much for your honesty. I appreciate creating a GIS or shapefile can be time consuming and councils are under pressure. Are you able to provide an excel spreadsheet with just the TPO Number, Tree Species, X Coordinates and Y Coordinates we can do all the work from there. It would be really helpful if you could.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Wilde

Dear Mr Wilde
 

The attached spreadsheet is the best available data. Please note it is
subject to regular updates as new TPOs are made.
