Observations 

Consultation complete; one objection has been received from the Tree Forum citing the tree is neatly tucked between the garage and party wall and there is no need to remove the tree. The location of the tree between two built structures with little space to allow incremental growth of the main stem or root system is sufficient reason to remove the tree before structural damage is caused via either direct or indirect damage. The young ash is located within a narrow space between a garage and neighbouring party wall. The tree has the potential to attain 18-20m in height with a significant stem diameter; as the tree matures inevitable structural damage will occur. This is the wrong location for a self sown climax tree species. The tree's removal is reasonable before significant structural damage is caused. The removal will have a limited impact to the visual amenity of this part of the conservation area due to additional trees within the applicants garden that are located in more suitable locations. 

Recommended: Preservation Order NOT REQUIRED   

Our Objection.

The tree is not large for a an Ash and is tucked neatly in between a garage on the left and the party wall. Most of its growth is over the garage with little or any growth over the neighbouring property.

If the branches growing over the neighbouring property are indeed causing a nuisance then this can be managed by careful pruning. There is no need to fell the tree of which there are few enough in this part of the city.
