Application Summary Application Number: 19/03401/VP Address: Stokeleigh Lodge 3 Downs Park West Bristol BS6 7QQ Proposal: Copper Birch - fell as causing damage to neighbouring property.TPO 1002/R Case Officer: Tom Luck Customer Details Name: Ms Tree Forum Tree Champion Stephanie French Address: 18 Old Sneed Avenue, Bristol BS9 1SE Comment Details Commenter Type: Amenity - Residents Group Stance: Customer objects to the Planning Application Comment Reasons: Comment:This has to be the most persecuted tree on my patch. There have been several attempts to get rid of it, or reduce it to such a size that it would die anyway. I am no structural engineer, just someone who likes trees and values their environmental contribution, such as making oxygen for a start. Could the Tree Officer please make sure that he is confident that the tree is the cause of the damage? It is a long way from the house. The roots are going to be pretty small that far out. I know in the past that BCC has commissioned their own examinations when subsidence has been alleged for example.
