BTF response: OBJECT

The description of this application is confusing as it only mentions one tree - 'Maple (T2) Fell' - yet a Rowan at another location is also identified for felling.

The applicant has failed to justify why these two trees need to be felled. They appear to be in good condition and disease-free. The Maple in particular, is in a prominent position and appears to be an excellent example of its species, though not yet mature, and appears to be disease-free. Given its prominent position, it has high public amenity value. It should be protected with a Tree Preservation Order. It is not possible to see the position or state of the Rowan., but if it too is in good health, is disease-free and in a prominent position, then it too should be protected with a Tree Preservation Order.

It is likely that tree planting was Conditioned as part of the original development. Accordingly, if permission is given to proceed with felling, then the applicant should be required to replace the trees either on site or nearby.

I would like to know if the felling of the tree is on assumption that it poses a danger tothe surrounding buildings, no one seems to know. It would be a disaster to chop it down if it isn'taffecting any properties, it's one of the first things that can be seen when coming into the Wharf,and lack of it would make the place more mediocre than it is. I am totally against the choppingdown of it, pruning would be a better way to go then there would be no unsightly trunkon view for all to see, it would be detrimental to the estate.

This tree provides an attractive green entrance to the estate. The trunk is at least sixmetres from the building. Tree roots do not usually damage drains unless the drains are alreadycracked which I assume ours are not. Trees are visual and environmental assets. This tree needspruning not destroying.

No reason given for felling this tree in a conservation area, so I object to it. Treesshouldn't be chopped down for no reason.

This is a prominent and attractive tree at the entrance to the housing estate. It is probably worthyof a TPO.

This is the only tree left in view from 1 Mardyke Ferry Road and would be upsetting for itto be removed. It provides privacy and assumably a sound barrier for Flat 1 Napier Court(potentially their neighbour, Flat 6 Napier Court, as well).

The tree is a sound & street light barrier and provides privacy to our flat and garden aswell as neighboring flat (flat 1).
