Lib Dems Demand that Felled Trees are Replaced

April 20, 2019 1:31 PM

Lib Dem councillors are trying to get roadside trees replaced after they were felled in a number of Chesham roads. But Tory councillors on the Town Council and County Council are more interested in fighting each other about who knew the trees were going to be felled and which council will pay for replacements.

The County Council has for years had a policy of not replacing highway trees which have to be removed but it would permit the Town Council to do this. So Lib Dem Councillor Alan Bacon asked the Town Council to do this. The Tories insisted that the Town Council should only do it if the County Council (also controlled by Tories) agrees to pay. It looks like a stand-off at the moment, but the Liberal Democrat team is determined to keep roadside trees in Chesham.
