●● 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.
