Trees being cleared near a property in Fulwood has triggered concern from nearby residents.Advertisement
Cadley councillor John Potter says work near Savick Brook has seen his phone and emails light up since the work in Derby Road started,.
The work is being done to provide a clearer view and work to repair a bridge over the brook on land behind homes.
Cllr Potter said the trees being felled appear to have a ‘quality and age to them’.
He said he’d contacted planning officers about the works, as no planning application had been submitted.

The landowner said they had used a professional contractor and needed to clear access to the site near the brook.
The house and land are understood to currently be up for sale.
Planning officers have advised councillor Potter the trees of ‘of low public amenity value’ and were not covered by a tree preservation order so no permission was needed.
