Tree Policy

The Parish Council has recently drawn up an Advisory Tree Policy.

The idea of the Tree Policy is to guide and influence all decisions affecting the management of trees and hedges within the village. The policy will dictate how the Parish Council manages the land within its jurisdiction and will guide landowners and residents when considering their trees and hedges.

Every landowner remains responsible for trees and hedges on their property and Matlock Bath Parish Council in enacting this policy, in no way accepts any liability for trees and hedges not on its property.

If any aspect of this policy conflicts with statutory planning law or any aspect of common law or liability, the law takes precedence.

The aim is to act in partnership with everyone in our community to allow speedy, effective appropriate management of trees without unnecessary due bureaucracy and expense.

The Advisory Tree Management Policy was adopted by Matlock Bath Parish Council on 23rd January 2013. The Policy is attached below.
