Trees/shrubs

 

1.      We welcome the proposal (34.3.62) to protect mature trees in the context of basement developments but think that this protection should extend also to mature shrubs which are equivalent to trees (in that they have similar stature and mass).  Permission was recently granted in connection with a basement development for the removal of a mature shrub which is between 6 and 7 metres high and looks just like a tree but has no protection because it is a "shrub" and not a tree.  We note the concern to protect the long term future of shrub planting in paragraph 34.2.71.
