Following discussions with HDC Arboriculture team and the Parish Council, Oakford Homes have applied for and obtained planning permission (DC/19/0407) to undertake further essential tree works around the development. This mainly involves precautionary surgery to reduce tree spread for safety reasons, but it includes felling of some existing diseased/dead trees. The felled trees will be replaced with replanting (exact species to be agreed by the Parish Council). This work will go ahead as soon as possible, subject to checking for bird nesting in each case. Full details of works are set out here.
