The Armada Way trees should never have been chopped down. I am pleased that the court has protected these final few trees from the Conservative Council for the time being.
Cutting down these trees was an act of environmental vandalism and the court’s decision today shows that the original decision was questionable.
I have strongly opposed this scheme for months. The Tory cabinet – who signed off the felling without a vote from councillors – showed complete disregard towards the public.
We now need to see the remaining trees protected and more planted in Armada Way.
