There is one poor tree that has been scheduled for the chop, not because it is in danger of falling, or its roots were damaged. After the other trees are chopped down this tree will be on ts own, with none of its friends around it. That apparently means that it will be subject to the wind and will be in danger of blowing over, so it requires to be murdered.

In short it is claimed that THIRTEEN tree roots were damaged by a digger, not one or two but THIRTEEN.

In addition one tree will be lonely, so FOURTEEN require to be chopped.

Or do they.

The report says that they are perfectly healthy and will live for another 20 years.

Are they to be removed because the council want the small access road to the bin store to be in line, yet the report says they can move it back a bit if they wish.

Fourteen trees to be removed, only one is dead, the pothers are healthy and in no danger of falling down.

Mr Google tells us that this report would cost between £500 - £650, removal of he trees would cost thousands and the replanting of mature trees, if undertaken, would also cost thousands.

Who will pay, the tax payers or the builders insurance company?

In addition the specialist cannot ascertain if 13 roots were damaged, and the extent of the damage because they have been covered over with stones as per the photographs.

It would appear there is still no appeal, our MP and local Cllrs have been requested to look into this.

We have received information today, which would appear to indicate that in the case of a Heath & Safety issue, the council (whoever that individual is) can order destruction of trees without any cause to consult anyone. Who that council officer is that takes that decision I have no idea.

However we would have to say that in our opinion there are no H&S issue and Cllrs should be fighting this corner to stop this unknown council officer from ordering the removal of these perfectly healthy trees. To not do so is, in our opinion, a travesty.

Thanks for update.

fait accompli ?

Have ANY Councillors tried to help and/or stop this ?

I did not receive the courtesy of an acknowledgement/reply from any of Planning Committee Councillors.

Keep East Ren Green
2 hrs

ERC are planning on destroying 13 protected trees in Crookfur Park
which were allegedly damaged by the diggers.

This raises many questions;

1- How can the builders possibly have destroyed the roots of 13 protected trees?
The driver would surely have realised something was amiss prior to reaching number 13?
2 - Where was the gaffer who’s supposed to walk alongside the digger, guiding?
The tree roots are clearly shown on the plans.
3- Did ERC and the developers not see them?
4 - What are the reasons the trees are to be felled?
ERC claim health and safety.
The report does not support this.
The trees have a lifespan left of at least 10- 20 years.
5 - Why have the line of alleged damaged roots been filled in?
The report states the trees were examined on the 12th Aug.
6 - Why would they need to be ‘re examined’ 3 weeks later?
The report states the path can easily be moved.
7 - Why was the ‘Comment On Planning’ added to this proposal?
8 - Who added it?
9 - Do you think this behaviour by ERC is democratic, open and transparent?
10 - Do you think think the residents of ER deserve better?

ERC are applying to themselves for
permission to fell these protected trees.- In spite of the fact the report commissioned by themselves does not support this application.

ERC have applied a ‘Comment On A Planning Order ‘ to this application, meaning the public are unable to object and the Planning Application Committee Councillors are not allowed to comment either.

The RESIDENTS of East Ren managed to protect Shawwood and Broompark for the next 30 years,
We need to apply the same pressure to this issue.
