Looks like tree felling is due to take place on & around Sandford Grove Rd from Mon 11th Dec, as signs have gone up telling motorists to move their cars between 7am - 7pm for 5 days from the 11th.

It'll be interesting to see the disruption this causes for parents & children trying to get to the nearby Abbeydale Primary & looking at some of the trees due to be felled, if some residents stand in their own gardens, it'll be a Health & Safety nightmare as some of the tree branches encroach onto their properties.

I wonder if the police will be involved, telling people to get out of their own gardens?

I would hope local residents show a bit of common sense, wouldn't you?

Perhaps some of the local residents want to be rid of the trees?

Perhaps they should come on here and tell us, after all there are two sides to every story.

I'd hope that the police would respect the rights of homeowners to stand on their own property.

And if a branch bonks them on the head its their lookout.
Common sense.

If that branch just falls off a tree, I agree that it is their look out.

If it is chopped and dropped by a third party, that is a completely different matter.

I also hope that the protesters respect the homeowners right to not have them on their property.

Do you have any examples of them not respecting those rights?

Just to clarify, which of the incidents in that long thread are you pointing to? It does happen that householders give permission to protestors to stand on their property. That may have happened in your account in your first posting there. Certainly any protesters I've spoken to know that they can't stand in gardens where permission hasn't been given.

Common sense.
Common sense says that work should only be carried out when it's safe to do so.

On Radio Sheffield last week some residents (I think in Nether Edge) were interviewed.

One or two said that the protestors were quite hostile when refused access to peoples gardens.

The homeowners at the Norton Lees protest were out, so the two 'sweet little old ladies' took it on themselves to sit on the steps on the homeowners property.
The front page of the Sheffield Telegraph had a picture of a protester in a full face mask, don't you feel this is rather threatening? They have also been photographed filming the workmen doing their job...that's a no no.

Why shouldn't they film the workmen? News crews have been doing the same and broadcasting it on national television.

So to prevent the work being done all the protesters have to do is make the situation unsafe. Which I'm sure they are happy to do, up to and probably including personal injury and/or death.

Fair warning should be given, obviously.

They usually have their permission to film. They're news crews, not vigilantes!
