Some of the controls applicable in a conservation area include:

Control over trees –trees are given special protection. You must apply in writing for consent if you intend to top, lop, or fell a tree over 75mm (3 inches) in diameter, measured at 1.5 metres above ground. You must submit your notification at least six weeks before you intend to start work. Certain trees are exempt from this additional control, such as dead, dying or dangerous trees and some fruit trees.
