Representation ID: 67723

Received: 31/05/2019

Respondent: Woodland Trust

Representation:

The Woodland Trust would like to see planting of trees (whether street trees, trees on areas of greenspace or small copses) considered as part of any new development in the area. We would be happy to be consulted by the district council, parish council or housing developers regarding any such opportunities. There is strong evidence that planting of trees can help create pleasant, healthy environments for local residents, as well as encouraging wildlife and helping to tackle wider environmental problems such as climate change.
