RESOLVED that the Borough of Charnwood (129 Rothley Road, Mountsorrel) Tree Preservation Order 2020 be confirmed with modification to remove trees T2, T3 and T5 from the order.

 

Reason

 

Having considered, in accordance with the procedure set out in the Council’s Constitution, the objection to the Order, the Committee considers that the reasons put forward for not protecting the trees T2, T3 and T5 outweigh the contribution they make to the amenity of the area and that trees T2, T3 and T5 should not therefore be protected.

Considered a report of the Head of Strategic Support setting out details of the Tree Preservation Order served on the above site, the objections received to the Order and the comments of the Head of Planning and Regeneration on the issues raised by the objections (item 6 on the agenda and agenda supplement filed with these minutes).

 

Assisting with consideration of the report: the Locum Solicitor.

 

The Head of Planning and Regeneration’s representatives and both objectors attended the meeting to put forward their cases and answer the Committee’s questions.

 

The Committee considered this matter in accordance with the “Procedure for Considering Objections to Tree Preservation Orders” set out in the Council’s Constitution and on the agenda for this meeting.

 

RESOLVED that the Borough of Charnwood (The Bradgate, 37 Main Street, Newtown Linford) Tree Preservation Order 2020 be confirmed without modification.

 

Reason

 

Having considered, in accordance with the procedure set out in the Council’s Constitution, the objections to the Order, the Committee considered that the reasons put forward for not protecting the trees did not outweigh the contribution they made to the amenity of the area and that the trees should therefore be protected.

 

Notwithstanding the above, the Committee noted that the protection afforded by the Order did not prevent the future and appropriate management of the trees via an application for works to trees subject to a tree preservation order.
