 18. MOTION TO BE MOVED BY COUNCILLOR SCHOFIELD

 Context:

Property and Services Committee 5th May. Paper B. Levellings update. The update makes recommendations to have a survey done on tree/trees on Levellings. Whilst it mentions that, provided there are no issues with planning, they will remove the tree/trees and repair any damage to the pathways, it does not mention the sustainability of new tree growth to maintain or reduce Carbon Emission.

I recommend that:

“The Planning Committee ask for details on the replacement of any trees removed, the location and number of replacement trees and how they will be managed to ensure growth.”

In this current climate the loss of trees is a world wide concern. Being very aware of how important it is to maintain and where possible increase tree numbers I am disappointed that this was not automatically raised by the Chair or other Councillors and if it had been discussed should have been reflected in the update.

I know for many people the removal of trees is not seen as an issue, however I hear comments regularly from residents who do feel strongly that the trees we have left are preserved wherever possible and at least replaced, and I feel the Council should set an example.

Seconded by Councillor Plastow.

RESOLVED to extend the meeting passed 2 hours.

RESOLVED to ask the Property and Services Committee for details on the replacement of any trees removed, the location and number of replacement trees and how they will be managed to ensure growth.”

Meeting concluded at 9.03pm
