  • I see you are now proposing to plant more trees in the Bear Flat area ( street-trees-project-consultation/ view-proposals-map) and yet it appears you are unable to manage the trees that are already present. Trees need to be managed - and yet it appears you are incapable of undertaking this basic task. Until you can take responsiblity for the trees you plant, please don't plant any more.

  • Please provide feedback on the tree planting proposal at Bear Flat via the online consultation ( street-trees-project). Responses will be reviewed once the consultation has closed, and feedback considered before the project proceeds.

  • Once again pollarding of "other trees" in Poets area has been undertaken but, once again, no action has been taken on trees in question. Trees need to be managed. Please provide update. When are you expecting to undertake pruning/ cutting back of species of trees that have to date been neglected?

  • This was raised over 3 years ago and yet it appears no action has been taken. Further, other reports of over-grown trees in the area have been made. The rees are your responsibility. Please provide an update

  • Thank you for your report. These trees have been inspected recently and works identified. These works are not safety critical so will be added to our non priority programme for this winter.
