BTF response: OBJECT

Both the location of both the address and tree T2 (Cupressus macrocarpa Monterey cypress) is unclear. The only address with cypress growing in the grounds is a new-build house on Small Lane next door to the Old Tavern public house and this is a hedge of the trees growing along the boundary which has been there since at least 2008 when viewed with Google Street View.

This needs to be clarified. If the application is appling to remove the hedge which is made up of a number of trees, then they should say so.

In any event, we see no reason why the hedge cannot be clipped as appears to have happened in the past. This should address the shading issue.

We also observe that 'excessive shading' should be allowed as a reason for removing any tree (or a hedge).

In any event, the applicant should be encouraged to replace the tree if they are permitted to remove it.
