●● PLAN­NING per­mis­sion has been re­quested from Cheshire East Coun­cil for the felling of a tree and for work to be car­ried out on other trees at Castle Hill in Prest­bury.

Pro­pos­als are to per­form a ‘crown lift’ and a ‘crown thin’ on two ma­ture trees to the front of the premises on the left hand side.

One of the trees is a cop­per beech and the other is a lyme tree.

The crown lift­ing would in­volve re­mov­ing the lower branches to al­low ac­cess and shel­ter in the shade cast by the tree.

The crown thin­ning would let in more light by re­mov­ing some sec­ondary branches and dead or con­gested shoots.

The ap­pli­cant has re­quested that the large pine tree to the rear of the gar­den on the road­side of the prop­erty, lo­cated near to a wooden gar­den shed, is felled due to ex­ces­sive move­ment and the worry that more branches may snap out. ●● DE­VEL­OP­ERS have also ap­plied to the coun­cil for a dis­charge of con­di­tions re­lat­ing to the de­mo­li­tion of two ex­ist­ing dwellings on Castle Hill in Mottram St An­drew.

The build­ings con­cerned are Plum Tree Cot­tage and Beaver Lodge.

The de­mo­li­tion is also to in­clude all of the as­so­ci­ated out­build­ings.

It is pro­posed that two re­place­ment dwellings are con­structed in place of those de­mol­ished.
