The process to remove local trees

Wednesday, July 16, 2014

Heeley MP Meg Munn recently met local residents who had expressed concern about the removal of trees under the Streets Ahead project at a site visit in Meersbrook. She was joined by Cllr Jack Scott (cabinet member responsible for Streets Ahead), Cllrs Cate McDonald and Tim Rippon (as representatives of the local area), and staff from Amey (the contractors).

Streets Ahead is a city-wide highways maintenance project that will upgrade the condition of our city’s roads, pavements, street lights, bridges and other items on or around our streets. It will replace some road-side trees with species that are more suitable for modern roads. Trees that are dead, dying, diseased, damaging the highway or causing severe obstruction may be removed and replaced so the overall number of roadside trees will not reduce.

The purpose of the visit was to give residents a chance to hear directly from the Council the reasons why certain trees have been designated for removal, and to see if there was any way that they could be saved. Despite being quite lively at times, overall Meg felt the meeting was a success and that both parties went away with a better understanding of the others concerns.

After listening to local residents the Council have agreed to save one tree in Carfield Place, with a further three to be reviewed when work commences. Meg has also agreed to convene a public meeting later in the year to give local people the opportunity to offer their views on the selection of replacement tree species.

Meg said:

“I appreciate that this is a sensitive issue in which there is a wide range of views. Getting local residents, Amey staff and elected representatives together for a site visit was a perfect opportunity for people to highlight concerns and learn more about the Council’s Streets Ahead project.

 In Sheffield we are incredibly proud of our green city and I am looking forward to continuing to work with both the Council and the local community as the project continues.”
