ROW OVER TREE FELLING

Canal Boat - - News -

Felling of trees along­side the Grand Union Canal at Hayes with­out per­mis­sion has led to com­plaints from res­i­dents, coun­cil­lors and lo­cal MP John McDon­nell. Con­trac­tor Her­itage Tree Ser­vices “changed the vista be­yond recog­ni­tion” in the words of David Brough of Hayes Town Part­ner­ship. The Canal & River Trust has con­firmed most of the trees were on its land, it gave no per­mis­sion for felling and it has con­tacted de­vel­oper Crown­gold Prop­er­ties (who em­ployed the con­trac­tor) ask­ing for a plan for re-plant­ing and land­scap­ing. The Trust also has ev­i­dence that some of the felling de­bris was left in the wa­ter; this has been re­ported to the En­vi­ron­ment Agency.
