Tree Works Update
The Council is aware that the tree works in the Town are causing concern with some residents.
The Council understands these concerns but has a legal obligation to undertake the necessary tree works to ensure public safety. All the tree work being undertaken on behalf of Southwell Town Council, follows a comprehensive tree study and approval by Newark and Sherwood District Council (NSDC), with a licence obtained from the Forestry Commission for Ash Tree Spinney
After public consultation throughout the summer, and a comprehensive tree survey, the work is being done later than the Council would like. The Council has been advised by the NSDC tree officer and assured by the tree contractor that each tree will be assessed for signs of nesting birds. Any birds seen to be nesting will cause the contactor to stop, and for the tree to be reassessed in this light.
Southwell Town Council seeks to balance the protection of nesting birds with public safety.
The Council are not cutting any hedges and all works are being strictly monitored not to infringe the Countryside and Wildlife Act 1981.
