Decision - Preservation Order NOT REQUIRED
Observations Consultation complete: 18 objections received. Objections summarised as: 1. Loss of habitat and wildlife corridor 2. Impact on wildlife 3. Impact on No reason for works provided Tree Officers
1. The subject trees are constrained to those in poor condition or poor form - the numerous remaining trees will continue to contribute to the local wildlife.
2. Not a consideration of a 211 Notification I'm afraid.
3. A reason is not required for a 211 notification.
During my site visit the resident stated the area has not been managed for several years. The steeply sloping site faces Troopers Hill - the garden is clearly visible from Troopers Hill and the site contributes to the local amenity value.
The proposed tree works includes the felling of several small trees with poor structural and physiological condition. Due to their small stature, the loss of these trees will not impact the amenity value of the conservation area. I have uploaded an annotated photograph from Troopers Hill, which shows all significant trees on site will be retained. Due to the small stature and poor condition of these trees, I have no objections.
The works proposed are acceptable.
We have submitted our comments objecting to this application.
