A County Council landscape plan is part of the process when applying to build a new house. The planning department often request this to ensure that new houses are landscaped in accordance with local planning laws.
Typically, councils and and local authorities will ask for details on all proposed site boundary treatments and a detailed planting plan stating species, varieties, quantities and sizes of the proposed plants. Use of native species and a timescale for implementation will also be requested.
I will visit the site, identify and list existing trees and shrubs and make recommendations for future planting. I provide plans that will satisfy County Council requirements.
Along with retaining any plant life that is not affected by the building works and my use of native trees and plants form a strong part of my landscape plans that are submitted to the County Councils.
