The end of the line for a magnificent tree ……..

Sat, 28 Oct 2017 16:02 by Pam McMorran - Site Administrator

I am afraid that there has been an unwelcome development in the Churchyard, which has been maintained by Newtown Linford Parish Council for many years. During the required tree trimming of branches overhanging the pavement (which was carried out by an authorised tree surgeon with permission from Charnwood Borough Council) the tree surgeon noticed that the magnificent Copper beech in the corner of the Churchyard was suffering from a fungal disease at the base of the trunk/root system. He advised that the tree needed to be assessed by the Leicestershire County Council Tree Inspector James Cutts. Unfortunately, the Inspector's advice was that the tree was unsafe, suffering from a terminal fungal infection and would need to be felled imminently. More »

His advice immediately supersedes any decision by ourselves or Charnwood and overrides any existing tree protection orders. The tree's position near to the road and the Park entrance, coupled with its existing lean, means that, were it to collapse, there could be a severe danger to the Public. So, it is with extreme reluctance that we have arranged for the felling of this tree early in January. The work will take place on the 11th and 12 January 2018 when there will be appropriate traffic management.

We will be replanting at the earliest opportunity, in consultation with the Church, and have been advised that any replacement trees should not be affected in a similar fashion.

a resident writes: - Went through a village last week and past a primary school where they had posts in the shape of school children by their traffic shickane and school. My husband slowed right down as he thought at first they were children from afar, we both thought what a great idea both from a village look and a safety aspect for school these could be in our village. Please could you look at these as a possible replacement for one or two of the wooden posts instead of what we have now that do not work and the proposed plastic option More »

Clerk comment:- whilst doing some research I noticed several articles from residents in other areas objecting most strongly to them. » Less
