3) Revision: Supporting text Para 34.3.62

•    The need to ensure that mature trees are not harmed or put at risk in the long term to make way for a basement development is acknowledged.  We propose however that the option of tunnelling under trees as set out within BS 5837 2012 should be considered on a case specific basis, and not wholly dismissed.  We suggest that this be reworded to allow an element of flexibility in exceptional instances.
