Tree Preservation Order project review

London Borough of Southwark


Submission summary: Between 2018 and 2019, Southwark Council undertook a wholesale review and Capital Asset Valuation (CAVAT) of its protected tree stock; introducing a benchmark standard for the management of TPOs.
The data collected allows Southwark to better understand its urban forest, its risks and its values, and allows Southwark to target management where it is most needed.
The culmination of the project was the development of a publicly accessible, interactive TPO and Conservation Area online map, with up to date information and access to confirmed orders. Updated on a regular basis, this is maintained by a dedicated TPO Officer.
