Landscape planning


The Council is likely to require landscaping works to be carried out on most new development where planning permission is required. Unless a detailed landscaping scheme is submitted as part of the planning application, the requirement for such a scheme would usually bey required by a condition attached to a planning permission.

Such conditions would usually require full details of landscaping proposals to be formulated and agreed (with the Council) before the development proceeds. This may include a requirement for planting schedules, boundary and surface treatments and maintenance regimes. There is also usually a requirement to maintain the landscaping for a period to ensure that any planting and landscaping that fails is replaced to ensure its long term effectiveness.
