Additional documents:


A 211 Notice was received to carry out works to willow trees on the eastern side of the Island, to the rear of 5, 6 and 7 Capstan Close.


The Committee were asked to:

(1) Confirm the TPO or

(2) Allow the TPO to lapse


(3) Allow tree works, subject to condition or

(4) Refuse tree works.


The Committee received a representation in objection to the application from Mr Spiegelhalter.


The representation covered the following issues:

  i.  There was no evidence the trees were a current danger.

  ii.  There was a need for some tree work. Took issue with the work proposed in the Officer’s report and suggested this was too much as it would expose the unattractive boathouse. A management plan was in place already.


The Committee:


Unanimously resolved to accept the officer recommendation and grant permission to confirm the TPO that was the subject of the application; and tree works are allowed subject to condition limiting extent.
