|Another side to the story:|
1. All residents whose houses back onto these trees were notified in August of the Council's plans and were invited to comment. Residents have over a number of years expressed their concerns about these trees.
2. The trees have doubled in height in the last 15-20 years and are in close proximity to the houses in Alexandra Road that back onto the park.
3. In times of high winds they pose a threat of damage to property and injury to occupants. A large branch recently broke off one tree and landed in the alleyway. Fortunately no one was injured.
4. A majority of the inhabitants of those houses concerned support either the removal of the more dangerous trees or a reduction in their height. The latter approach is apparently not council policy.
5. The photos on the petition site do not show how high the trees are in relation to the houses, nor their proximity.
