STATEMENT OF REASONS FOR MAKING THE ORDER
As part of a review of Tree Preservation Orders across their administrative area, Aberdeenshire Council have reviewed the original Order ACC 15 (1967) served on six areas of ground adjacent to the A947 within the centre of the settlement of Turriff. Aberdeenshire Council consider that the individual trees, groups of trees and areas of woodland within these areas make a valuable contribution to the amenity and character of this part of the settlement and wish to see them retained in the long term.
The extent of the new Order is less than that of the original as the area of ground within public ownership is not included in the new Order. The format of the new Order has been altered from use of the area designation to more accurately represent the tree and woodland cover.
The new Order has been served on relevant parties.
