Trees in the Cheriton Conservation Area

Trees in Conservation Areas

Trees within conservation areas are protected and works to trees in these parts are subject to restrictions.

This means before you do any work on a tree in the Cheriton Conservation Area you must first notify Winchester City Council. To find out whether your tree is in a conservation area, visit the attached sketch map.

If you wish to apply for works to be carried out on a tree in a conservation area and you know what works you wish to undertake, please call the City Council on 01962 848 301 or email

If you are unsure as to what work you would like to carry out and would like to seek help, we recommend you contact a Tree Consultant before applying to the Council. A list of consultants approved by the Arboricultural Association can be found at

We ask that you decide what works you would like to undertake before contacting the City Council.

The City Council requires 6 weeks notice of work to any tree in a conservation area. This enables us to inspect the site and consider the proposed work.

Please be warned, if work is carried out to a tree within the 6 week period without the City Council's consent, this can result in criminal prosecution and a fine of up to £20,000.
