Landscaping plans should accurately show:
- a scale bar or a measured dimension
- the position and spread of the existing trees
- details of any trees to be retained and measures to be taken to protect the trees
- the species of the trees and details of their condition
- an indication of which, if any, trees are to be felled
- details of the size, species, and positions of trees to be planted and boundary treatments
In many instances the submission of landscaping details can be a condition of the planning permission. In some cases specialist detail, for example a tree survey or detailed design, may be required when submitting landscaping schemes.
It is recommended that you discuss scope and detail required with the planning officers prior to submission.
