This elm is at the boundary of Croft Court and North Quay. IT IS IN A CONSERVATION AREA where strict rules apply. Half the roots were cut off by excavation for the North Quay, despite the rules which govern the care of trees in a Conservation Area. The original plans should have taken into account the trees on the site. PCC have no intention of protecting trees when they are in a speculative development This is a ten foot deep rock face, despite the loss of half its roots the tree is healthy and thriving.
If the buildings are built to the planning specification and this then happens it is part of a pattern in which no consideration is given to trees. When North Quay was built half the roots and halfh the branches were removed, now they want to remove the tree completely
Trees in a CONSERVATION AREA must be sacrosant.

This is an insult seven working days from 210808 for comment. Minor changes and the addition of chimneys. Ticky tacky minimum standard maximum profit (if they can sell them). All new housing should be built to a standard which can be bought by a Local Authority or Housing Trust. These are environmentaly unacceptable a waste of materials and a burden on buyers to maintain,

On the JUDP as an Ancient Monument this curved limestone wall was to the height of the first floor. It had been pointed with cement sand in the recent past which led to the decay of the rubble infill. The wall has been rebuilt by breeze blocks with a thin stone cladding. The rounded corner has been demolished to allow a door and vision for the users of the door. You can see from the photograph that there is a blue door with an ample apperture towards the rear to site the one door. This should have been considered at the Planning Application stage not when building is almost complete.
