Tree Preservation Order - Off Spring Brook 2021 pdf icon PDF 3 MB

Report of Director of Economic Development and Planning enclosed.

Minutes:

The Director of Economic Development and Planning submitted a report asking committee to consider whether the Off Springbrook Tree Preservation Order 2021 should be confirmed.

 

A request had been received to remove 6 semi-mature ash trees due to the potential of them dying from ash dieback. A site visit and evaluation of the trees had taken place and in the officer’s view they were considered to be of visual amenity value with most of them not showing any advanced signs of ash die back. This would be monitored once the canopies are fully developed in the spring. A tree preservation order would protect the trees, but not preclude tree work being carried out if and when necessary. It would also ensure that suitable replanting would take place to mitigate any loss.

 

RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE

 

Confirm the Off Springbrook, Clitheroe Tree Preservation Order 2021.

506.

Local Nature Reserves pdf icon PDF 272 KB

Minutes:

All land lying within the designated local nature reserves is owned by the Council although the Wildlife Trust for Lancashire maintain the sites for their biodiversity value  and geological value.

 

RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE

 

1.    Confirm payment of £3880 already issued in relation to work carried out by arboricultural consultants and tree contractors, and

 

2.    Authorise payment for £2000 for felling of ask die back infected trees relating to Salthill Nature Reserve.
