I am sharing the news that 4 beautiful, healthy, 100 year old Oak trees that shade the path leading down to the train tracks and domain tunnel from Gibraltar Crescent are being cut down by Summerset Development tomorrow. This is being done without providing the public or neighbours notice.
The council has accepted a nomination to list these trees as notable and therefore protected, so Summerset is rushing through the destruction of these trees tomorrow before they can be protected. Neighbours to the development offered to allow Summerset to build an extra floor above the normal height if they would save the trees and this has been refused.
If anyone can do anything to help it would be amazing! Please share this and shame Summerset Group.
