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.
