Fitzalan square regeneration

Recommended Posts

I know trees have become a Sheffield issue but what oh what is going on in Fitzalan square?

 

Why are they chopping them down this morning?

 

Madness---the only bit of real greenery in the area....are SCC mad?

Where were the tree huggers?

 

Oh yes, it doesn't affect them does it?

 

If it's not knocking money off their houses, they don't give a stuff.

Is the correct answer.

Part of the "£5.6m facelift" I guess, although in the artist's impression the mature London planes (which I assume are the ones being chopped down) are still there.

Of course they give a stuff, but they weren't aware of this until it was well under way.

It has been discussed on here before.

 

Looks like the contractors were streets ahead, this time.

I meant they weren't aware it was happening today. Can't be watching everywhere all the time.

There just seems no rhyme or reason to SCCs logic these days ... why are they at pains to chop down mature trees in the city centre when they are at pains to plant new ones, under risk of vandalism and traffic pollution, in other parts of the city centre ?

:mad:

Funny.

 

Half the time the tree protesters are castigated for not living on the streets they are protesting on, the other half the time they are slagged off as only being interested in the prices of their properties?

 

Which is it?

The work today apparently is a heavy pruning / pollarding, though whether the trees are still condemned in the planned upgrade work for Fitzalan Square is unknown.

 

Many people - including "tree huggers" - have campaigned vigorously to save these particular trees, and signed the petition below. Have you done either of these?

leftylou seems to be on a mission to discredit the tree campaigners.
