It’s a sad day for our city as the Armada Way trees have been felled. I’m appalled by this act of environmental vandalism, carried out overnight by our Conservative council.
The council has turned its backs on the thousands of residents who spoke out against the felling. It seems that public opinion has been drowned out by the chainshaws.
I am amazed that this expensive scheme is a priority when the council is slashing funding for vital public services across our city. We all want to see investment in our city centre, but chopping down nearly every tree on Armada Way was not the solution. Meanwhile, New George Street and Old Town Street have been left in a state for months.
The council cabinet has failed to listen to those it represents. This council cannot be trusted to make Plymouth the nature-friendly and net zero city we all want it to be.
