Living on the Moor Pool Estate
Living on the Estate, therefore, delivers many benefits, but also places some restrictions and responsibilities on residents.
TPO 534 is the reference number of the Moorpool Tree Preservation Order which has the same coverage as the Moorpool Conservation Area. It is an Area Order and covers all trees of whatever species within the boundary. TPOs of this kind are not ideal because they can only apply to trees which were existing when the order was made and so determining the protection of a relatively young tree can often be difficult. Trees younger than the TPO are not in this case protected by it although there is a requirement under a Conservation Order to give notice of works to any tree over 7.5cm diameter at 1.5m above ground. The metal tags on trees will refer to a tree survey carried out either privately or for Council street tree records and have no connection to TPO or Conservation Area status.
