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.

I needed a tree survey carried out quickly after one of my mature trees blew down in a storm. ROAVR responded promptly and professionally quickly identifying dangerous trees and giving reassurance about those that weren’t. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Very good. Competitive pricing was my initial reason to go with Roavr, but they did a really good job and v. thorough. Plus, The reports were sent with a link to a video 'walk through' - where Peter talked (and scrolled) through the salient parts of the report .This was such a good way to present the report and made things really clear.Reason for a tree survey: Im a self builder putting in for planning for a holiday cabin on ground screws among some trees.

We have a Sycamore tree that has been causing issues with roots getting into the drains and it is very close to our house, as it had issues we were worried that it might come down and hit the back of the house, particularly after doing house renovations we didn't want this to happen. Matt was great at explaining what needed to be done, he communicated via text and email, completed the survey and as we live in a Conservation Area he applied to council for planning permission, a few tree surgeons said that they doubt that we would get planning permission but with Matt's report we did. I only wished that we had done this when we bought the house 2 years ago as we could of had our planning application in sooner

we needed an aboricultural survey for planning following a visit from the council tree officer. ROAVR provided a clear, quick and cost effective quote for their survey and reports. Survey was booked and carried out efficiently. Their report was issued promptly and after a bit of amendment and clarification of which trees needed what, was submitted to planning. yet to have tree officer comment but hoping all will be OK.

What great service! The survey was needed to satisfy a Planning Officers last-minute request, and the whole service provided by ROAVR group was tuned into helping us achieve what we were seeing... promptly, simply and thoroughly. This is the second time we have used this company and will certainly call them next time we need this specialist help.

I can highly recommend Matt and his team to anyone looking for a professional and detailed tree survey and report. ROAVR came to our rescue with a very fast turn around which enabled us to achieve planning permission within our deadline. An experienced and very helpful company I would definitely use them again.

Very impressed with the service. I had approached about 3 consultancies before I discovered ROAVR. The others were not only dearer but were unable to deliver within the required timeline.As a layperson needing to challenge a subjective opinion of a local authority tree officer I needed a survey swiftly for planning purposes.ROAVR offered very good value ( cost 50% less), seemed to good to be true and provided a good quality survey within a short timeline.From the outset they were friendly, professional and helpful and listened to my needs and gave me an honest opinion. The initial free consultation was very helpful it deciding if was worthwhile proceeding.Received the report as promised and it met my expectations.I would recommend them to my friends and family.

I am a planning consultant with many years experience, and am well used to working alongside tree professionals. I have been extremely impressed by the ROAVR team. They have been incredibly helpful in advising about a very sensitive tree matter and have provided clear and punchy guidance throughout in a very responsive and lucid manner. Their "video update links" are extremely helpful. I have no hesitation in recommending their services. Top notch!

We were having problems providing a good quality tree survey and method statement for the siting of a Forest School building. Matt and the team took these issues, produced a great tree survey, Arboricultural Implications Assessment & Method Statement, which allowed us to discharge the planning conditions and produce a tree protection plan.Thank you guys. Very helpful and professional service. Would highly recommend them.

We needed planning permission to erect a car port next to our garage. We are in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the oak next to the site is protected by a tree preservation order. ROAVR responded quickly and efficiently to our request for a tree report and was instrumental to our gaining planning permission. I would unhesitatingly recommend their services. Adrian Banks, Kent.
