Northern Outlook - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

The six Po­plar trees in Dud­ley Park have been saved af­ter a unan­i­mous de­ci­sion from the Ran­giora-Ash­ley Com­mu­nity Board. The fu­ture of the trees, lo­cated at the north­ern end of Dud­ley Park, was put up to the pub­lic sub­mis­sion af­ter a re­quest to the Waimakariri District Coun­cil to re­move them. Of the 153 sub­mis­sions, 96 per cent were in favour of the his­toric trees re­main­ing, leav­ing the Ran­giora Com­mu­nity Board no choice but to spare the trees.
