Tree & Planning/ Construction (BS5837)

Legally, you’re required to ensure the safety of trees in an area you’re expecting to develop. Usually, when there are any proposed site works, construction and/or demolition, there’s a likelihood of some damage to trees. At times these trees may also pose a risk to your project.

In such circumstances, you’ll need arboricultural guidance to inform and support your application to the local planning authority. Fortunately, at Indigo Surveys we offer tree surveys to the recommended British Standard 5837:2012. Our specialists always consider design, demolition and construction recommendations. Contact us for a tailored approach that will help maximise your developable space and minimise your impact on trees on the proposed development site.

Health & Safety Tree Surveys

Our tree survey Leicester services include Health & Safety tree risk management surveys. We’ll have our specialists perform a visual tree evaluation that outlines the type and condition of each of the trees on your site.

The Occupiers Liability Act 1984 requires tree owners to ensure the safety of visitors to their land and/or its vicinity. You’ll need a tree survey for effective site management. It doesn’t matter if it’s a single tree or an extensive estate; our specialists will be able to help.

We can provide tree owners with tree reports making recommendations regarding retained trees and their management, tree removal and any required tree surgery pruning.

If you are looking to buy a home or acquire a mortgage, we are here to offer our services. We have tree surveyor specialists who’ll deliver a tailored approach to Leicestershire tree surveys, meaning you’ll be properly armed with the arboricultural information you need about the property you are planning to invest in.

You should be aware of the trees in the property’s vicinity and their potential impact or risk they pose to buildings and other structures like driveways and paths. Such information will help you satisfy lenders and insurers that your investment is not at undue risk due to the presence of trees.

“We have retained Indigo Surveys to undertake measured surveys and tree services for various projects over the last 5 years and have always found the price, quality and customer service to be excellent. Andrew Turnbull is exceptionally helpful, easy to contact and always responds to queries in a timely manner.”

Claire Williams
Project Manager

“I have worked with Indigo on many school projects. Many ran at the same time and had very short pre-construction programmes. Indigo were proactive and able to meet the challenging programmes, which enabled us to meet all submission dates for approval. We were kept aware of all ecology/arboricultural issues from the outset.”

Jane Shaw
Senior Design Manager

“Indigo’s role in the Project Team was crucial in obtaining Planning Permission on a complex and challenging site. Their expert arboricultural knowledge resulted in successful negotiations with the Planning Authority and helped make the project feasible while also ensuring that it preserved the character of the site.”

Graeme Mill
Project Architect

“We used Andy at Indigo Surveys for a difficult planning scheme in Wimbledon Village and found his knowledge and strategy in dealing with the various issues thrown up very impressive and the added footprint that this gave the client on the scheme was invaluable. We continue to use Indigo Surveys Ltd for Arboricultural Consultancy services, and would be very happy to recommend them.”
