Grove Wood Tree Preservation Order confirmed

Yesterday the City Council's South & East planning committee voted to confirm the Tree Preservation Order (TPO) on Grove Wood in Stapleton. The TPO was initiated following a campaign by residents concerned about the destruction of trees in this historic woodland.
Under planning law, once a TPO is requested there is a sx month peiod where objections can be made before the TPO is finally confirmed. The landowner objected to the TPO but all members of the committee voted to confirm it.
We hope this will protect this amenity for future generations.
