Save The Trees Update

A brief update on the Springfield Road Tree Campaign.

We have met with the Council Arboriculturalist who confirmed that the survey of trees requiring protection and or replacement will take place in the near future and those sites for replanting will be protected. He also informed us that the area is in Tree Planting Zone Three which is scheduled for 2019/20.

This came as a surprise as we, and our councillors, had been led to believe that if the trees were privately funded the work would not be subject to the Council’s planting timetable.

We find this very disappointing and frustrating and are currently trying to clarify the situation. We are hoping to set up another meeting with Council officers and will report again as soon as we have any further information.
