Written answers (Question to Environment)

Details of the numbers of Tree Preservation Orders in force by area for the 2007-2012 period are available on the planning statistics section of my Department’s website at http://www.environ.ie/en/Publications/StatisticsandRegularPublications/PlanningStatistics/. It is a function of the relevant planning authority to make tree preservation orders, where deemed necessary, under section 205 of the Planning and Development Act 2000, as amended.
