Help to Protect Ackworth's Trees

Everyone living in and passing through Ackworth appreciates the number of mature trees in the village.

Trees can be protected by a ‘Tree Protection Order’ (TPO).

You can help to protect the trees by identifying individual trees and completing the TPO request form on Wakefield Council’s website. Obviously it is a huge task to cover the whole village. If you would be willing to plot the trees and complete the TPO applications in a specific area please let us know and we will coordinate this effort.

Please note that in the parts of the village that are in a conservation area all trees are already protected and planning permission is required for any work to them.

Please register your interest with the Parish Council via the website, by telephone 01977 611583, or email info@ackworthparishcouncil.gov.uk or call at the office.

For further details on TPO's please click here 

Planning Applications

At the Parish Council meetings consideration is given to current planning applications received by Wakefield Council.  This includes applications to fell trees.  It is the Parish Council's policy to object to all tree felling applications unless the tree is dead, dying or in a dangerous condition.  They do this to preserve the trees in the village.
