RE the re­moval of many ma­ture road­side trees on Welsh­pool Road East, Wattle Grove.

If you are fol­low­ing the story that has had over 6000 ‘sig­na­tures’ on Face­book op­pos­ing the im­mi­nent re­moval of large ma­ture tree on Welsh­pool Road East, the at­tached will be use­ful.

The Kala­munda coun­cil­lors were made fully aware that this is a very high ac­ci­dent risk lo­ca­tion and en­try to the site en­tails a U-turn across a very nar­row cen­tral reser­va­tion on a dual car­riage­way fac­ing fast-mov­ing traf­fic down Welsh­pool Hill. I asked them for­mally at the time when ap­proval was un­der con­sid­er­a­tion to help the Church to find another more suit­able lo­ca­tion to avoid such in­evitable hu­man risks and un­nec­es­sary re­moval of at least 13 large ma­ture road­side trees.

My con­cerns are for­mally recorded in the min­utes of the Novem­ber 28 Kala­munda coun­cil meet­ing.
