Hi David

Thanks for your email.

People must be given the opportunity to object to, or comment on, a new TPO. The council should take into account duly made objections, comments and representations before confirming a TPO.

Objections and representations are duly made if they are made in writing and delivered to, or could reasonably expected to be delivered to, the council not later than the date specified in the notice and specify the particular trees, groups of trees or woodlands in question.

The council should ensure that all notified parties are given at least 28 days from the date of the notice to submit their representations. There is no obligation to provide notice on you when the survey was carried out.

I hope this helps.

Unless you have any further questions/queries please rate/accept my answer to ensure that I get paid for my time responding to your query.

Kind regards
