Planning Applications

Getting the go-ahead…

Dispensing with the Landscape Conditions associated with planning applications forms much of the ELD workload and our experience of different Local Authorities both locally and nationally is extensive. We have a near 100% success rate at obtaining planning approval for landscape schemes associated with development. A standard five-year maintenance specification is required with clarification of maintenance responsibilities in perpetuity.

ELD has produced many Management Plans to gain planning approval, identifying the long-term management regime for existing and new planting, grass areas, woodlands, ponds and public areas.

To assist planning applications and gain approval, ELD produces:

  • Detailed planting plans with associated schedules of plant species, quantities and planting densities with specifications for planting and maintenance.
  • Measured schedules of quantities of hard & soft landscape works.
  • Information on site vegetation: trees retained, trees removed and remedial tree works.
  • Specification and location of tree protection around trees retained. Specification for ‘no dig’ construction to permit development over tree roots.
