PPS 7 (Addendum): Residential Extensions and Alterations
Landscape

2.6 The Department will resist proposals for extensions or other ancillary buildings that would result in the loss of significant local landscape features, in particular trees which are the subject of a Tree Preservation Order or which contribute to areas designated for their townscape or heritage importance. It is an offence to remove a tree which is subject to a Tree Preservation Order or which is located in a Conservation Area, without the prior written consent of the Department.
In other cases, where proposals  impact on local landscape features, the Department will normally seek the provision of compensatory planting to mitigate against the loss of local environmental quality and assist in the promotion of biodiversity.
