Review of tree removal decisions

You can review a Tree Removal decision by contacting Council’s Tree Officer at your local Customer Service Centre

If after discussions with the above officer, you are still not satisfied, you may appeal the determination in writing. Please note the following:

  • The appeal must be lodged within six months of the date of the determination.
  • The appeal must be accompanied by additional information not already provided in support of the application.
  • An assessment of the tree by an independent arborist’s report and/or a report from a consulting engineer or other accredited expert as appropriate in support of the application.
  • A fee applies to appeals on all previous tree determinations. This fee is currently 50% of the original application fee.

An appeal may be made to the Land and Environment Court of New South Wales within 6 months of the date of determination. Please seek your own legal advice in this regard.
