The Committee heard from the Trees and Landscape Officer regarding a report seeking to make a Tree Preservation Order to protect two woodland tree belts, to the westerly side of St Margaret’s Church and alongside the road to the north of the church, Somerby. Members heard that objections had been received from residents following trees having been cut down and the loss of bushes. The Committee saw photos from 2019 when some of the felling had been undertaken and that it was explained that the TPO would allow for no further felling in the area.
There were no further comments from the Committee and, having been moved, seconded and voted upon, it was unanimously
RESOLVED that, not withstanding the objections made by the owner and other village residents, the confirmation of the Tree Preservation Order Somerby No1 2021 be APPROVED.
