If You Are A Homeowner, Architect Or Developer Our BS5837 2012: Tree Surveys Will Help You Get Planning Consent First Time.

Maybe you’ve seen some of your hard earned work fall flat on its face, as your submission gets rejected due to poor quality mapping or reporting.

You’ve probably experienced, being left out in the cold facing the cold harsh realities of a consultant that has promised the world and just not delivered that report when they said they would, holding up the whole application.

It seems that nearly all of us in this business have experienced something like this from time to time. And truth be known, it’s at times like these that experience on the ground and in the trees is what counts.

Self taught surveyors dumping best practice in one last desperate attempt to cut costs and win work. Leaving nearly every planning submission skating on thin ice and open to submission rejection without a second thought.

And therein lies the big problem, and why most end up between an inevitable rock and a hard place.

Somewhere in my experience, between the utter mad panic of schedules, rock bottom budgets and the ever increasing demands for supportive data. 

Its exactly why in my experience, something always has to give.

And when something has to give, the lowest price consultant is usually given a shot. For most that means… the schedule stalls, the planning stalls, the project fails.

Which just goes to show that most of us working in this type of environment must do something different to produce these reports to stop the planning submission from collapsing like a house of cards.

That’s exactly why I want to have you consider the possibility that there is a NEW way for you to use an Arboricultural Consultancy.

A new way that means you can remove worry of poor quality data, shoddy maps or submission headaches.

Ultimately and possibly for the first time, a way to commission and obtain the report you need to support your planning application, a way that will get your planning back on track with our trees first not last promise.

So right now, if you are a homeowner, architect or developer and you are sick and tired of the shoddy reports, sick and tired of being let down, sick and tired of trees scuppering your project.

Then I urge you to click on the button, get your instant  quote so we can talk about the report you need, when you need it and how ROAVR can add real value with no additional cost to your next tree report.

Thanks to Matt and his team for a straightforward process. Matt was onsite on the date that was booked, and our PEA was provided in a timely fashion. Walk through video provided was very beneficial, describing the contents and detail of the report. Thanks again and highly recommended.

Landed into trouble with the local authority and almost jeopardised my planning application after engaging Roavr Group, largely owing to non-compliance when it comes to Bat assessments. Roavr also washed their hands off and disappeared from the scene. It cost me money and more importantly, time to get things under control. Will not be using them again and definitely will not recommend.

It is, refreshingly, one of the most professional services I have come across, and what made it even better is they were also the most cost-competitive.

We were looking for a company to conduct bat surveys for our proposed development. I chose ROAVR group as they were highly qualified, knew the area well, and they had amazing customer service from start to finish. Really friendly, thoughtful team.We were kept in contact from the team throughout the process, even during the gaps in between the surveys. The team genuinely appear to love their job and the work that they do.All the reports were extremely well written, nice and clear and the videos that accompanied them to explain everything was greatly appreciated. The reports highlight the high quality equipment that they use for the surveys and we could see that the work that was done for to a very high standard.Thanks to ROAVR group we now have some expert bat survey reports to submit to the council, we couldn't be happier with the work that they did and the communications we have received.

I’m compelled to write a review because I received a 1st class service.My property boundary is filled with overgrown trees but as I live in a Conservation area, I wanted to sought professional advice to understand what I could do without penalties or complaints!I was highly impressed from their service from start to finish. After booking online initially, the phone rang. I suspected it may be ROAVR offering a hard sell and upgrade but was pleasantly surprised to be asked if I’d like a free 15 minute call with one of their arboriculturists. The resulting call proved very helpful and explained my position and options completely.The survey was conducted as planned and the subsequent report was emailed along with a video commentary explaining not just what data the report contained but how specifically it could be used for planning permission etc.Following my review of the report, I arranged a follow-up call to agree next steps. Again, advice from genuine and affable people whom know their stuff and appear to really want to help.I highly recommend ROAVR. Each interaction I had with the team was friendly, helpful, professional and effective!

I needed a professional report on the probable cause of subsidence to a wall structure forming a boundary of my property caused by trees . ROAVR came up with a very detailed report together with photos of the damage and even Ariel shots of the area plus a video walk through. Right from the first contact they were so understanding and professional and swiftly got the task done right on the button of the time window they gave me . Thank you so much I’m sure your report will get things moving with the authorities. I have no hesitation in recommending this company.Good luck and Kind RegardsJames.D

Possibly one of the most efficient services I have ever had the pleasure to experience.From start to finish each member of the team knew exactly what their role was and so everything fell into place with incredible speed and efficiency. Add that to approachability and knowledge and what more could one ask for. Price wise … value for money says it all. I may need further assistance and am confident I will receive the same excellent serviceThanks to all

This company is amazing. From the very first person we spoke to on the phone, through the person who did our site survey and finally to the person who created our report, we could not have asked for a better customer service. They were calm, professional and just amazing. We slept for the first night in several nights, after just speaking with them, and that was before they'd even done any work and from then it just got better and better.Do not look anywhere else.

What can I say about ROAVR…After being messed around by a local planning officer for an equine development, I contacted a handful of survey companies in my area. Already stressed I received nothing but contempt for my situation, huge lead times, astronomical pricing and worst of all, no return phone call.I had a countywide Google and found the team at ROAVR. I called them at 10am and explained my situation, 10.10am I sent my application details and what I needed. By 10.30am I received a video presentation from Matt. This blew me away and they gained my business there and then.I could ask countless questions and nothing was a hassle. I needed two reports and after another round of being messed about by the council, they edited the ecological survey not long ago without any hassle.I couldn’t praise this company enough, as I’ve had nothing but first class service from everyone I had the pleasure of dealing with.

Fantastic service. When our planning application was put on hold I contacted Matt at Rovar and not only was his price competitive he was also happy to spent a lot of time with me on the phone discussing our project and going over our options. He has been so helpful and professional throughout. Many thanks.
