Outcome - the applicant changed their request to just pollarding and it was granted.
The applicant has applied to fell this Horse Chestnut tree alleging that it has caused ‘unsafe damage to party wall’.
From the photos supplied, the only damage shown appears to be to a short ‘stub’ wall that appears to be at the entrance to a car park at the rear of the address. There is no evidence produced that the adjacent party wall between the properties has been damaged by the tree.
This tree is growing in a group of two or three others also growing on the boundary. It is the last of this group, and, like some of the others, has already been much pollarded in the past. Despite this, the tree and the group offer significant public amenity value to this much over-developed part of the road.
There appears to be no good reason given for the tree to be removed. As an alternative, a simple repair, or even removal of the short stub wall offers a far better cost/benefit solution, given that the tree offers a much more significant amenity to the wider community than this wall does.
Consideration should also be given to protecting this tree and is associated group with a Tree Preservation Order or, if the Planning Authority is minded to grant this application, to requiring a similar tree to be planted in its place.
