CL7.c This policy is unreasonable. The Local Planning Authority does not derive statutory powers to control the nature of "Future Tree Planting of a Suitable Size". Owner occupiers have the right to decide whether or not to plant trees within their own garden and in many instances the planting of large trees in an urban environment can have a negative impact on the visual amenity of adjoining owners and more importantly may lead to damage to the shallow foundations of adjacent buildings which ar

We also have concerns about the wording of part c of Policy CL7. We query how the potential growth of trees in adjoining gardens can be properly assessed and we are concerned that the policy will be subjective and there is no criteria upon which to assess such impact.

I would also like to suggest that a person should be allowed to cut down a tree on his or her own land. It should be regarded as his or her right. I speak as someone who has planted more trees than he has cut down.
