How do you propose to mitigate the loss of the trees for several years? Have you calculated the loss of their air cleaning ability on this busy route?
The approved scheme includes an arboricultural survey and that sets out a tree removal plan for eight of the trees along Marsh Wall. The loss of these trees would be offset by the new soft landscaping proposals which include the provision of many more trees than those that were removed along with other associated soft landscaping within the new public park. Concerns relating to the establishment period for trees has been noted by Chalegrove and a proportion of mature trees will be incorporated into the new soft landscaping proposals.
