Tree Preservation Order No. 444, 3 Stortholme Mews, Sheffield, S10 3HT

Report of the Director of City Growth Service.



Vanessa Lyons (Community Tree Officer) attended the meeting and presented the report.



The Officer informed Committee that a Section 211 notice for removal of an oak tree had been received with the intention of removing a tree in the Conservation Area. In order to prevent the removal of the tree and others in the area, a Tree Preservation Order was therefore served.



One objection had been received in respect of the oak tree and its impact on a retaining wall.  The Officer had responded that oak trees were uncommon in Ranmoor, the property was newer than the tree and the footings were likely to have been built to an adequate standard such that damage from roots was unlikely.  The retaining wall was also structurally sound.



RESOLVED: That Tree Preservation Order No. 444 be confirmed unmodified.
