Report DC/10/14   considers the objection made to the Tree Preservation Order served in respect of two trees, a Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) and a Copper Beech (Fagussylvatica purpurea). The objections received generally relate to concerns regarding the size and suitability of the trees in this location; alleged and possible future damage to the objectors’ property as a result of the trees’ demand for water and light, fears that the trees cannot now be managed, to the detriment of the neighbours to the rear; and the perception that the trees do not make a positive contribution to the area in which they are located.
