Tree felling & planting in London Road Gardens
"There are 3 trees that have been marked for felling. These trees were surveyed as part of our routine health and safety checks. A works order has been raised and the trees will be removed in priority order as and when resources allow.
There are 10 trees due to be planted in London Road Gardens as part of this year's tree planting programme.
We are currently in the process of putting together a standard notice to put in parks notice boards explaining what the white / yellow crosses mean."
