Notice of Tree work

Notice of Tree work

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 16:24 by Pam McMorran - Site Administrator

I wish to make Newtown Linford Parish Council aware of some work which Leicestershire County Council (LCC) intends to carry out, to two trees on Bradgate Road. Both trees – an oak opposite 474 and ash opposite 422 – are within the highway extent and are managed by LCC.

Unfortunately the ash has become structurally weakened, following a heavy infestation by an aggressive decay pathogen. It cannot be safely retained as part of the highway and the proposed work is to remove the tree. We will of course look to provide a suitable replacement for it during the coming winter. More »

The oak has been in decline for many years now. Unfortunately it died during autumn 2016 and spring 2017. However, rather than fell what remains of the trunk I propose to reduce it in size. This is an attempt to retain the trunk as a feature and ecological habitat, similar to those found within Bradgate Park. We will also look to plant a suitable replacement for this tree. » Less

Crime prevention advice

There have been reports in Leicestershire of distraction breaks this month. The suspect approaches the house holder claiming to be from the water board and states that dye has been placed in the water. The homeowner is asked to run a tap and look for the colour change. During this the suspect steals items belonging to the occupant. More »

The warmer weather is here and the holiday season approaches. Please remember to secure all doors and windows when leaving your home, and if you have an alarm fitted this should be set.

Good news

There was an incident in Rothley where two males were seen in a building site. The males were spotted near to machinery on the site. The two males then made off but were then located and arrested close to the site. There has also been a positive result from a burglary – non dwelling in the Woodhouse Eaves area where 4 persons have been arrested.
