Southwark Council is going to cut down two mature, healthy oak trees, both well over 100 years old, to make its repairs to the footbridge easier. We have been asking for a public consultation, but although nearly 2,000 people have signed the petition to save the trees Southwark has made all its decisions behind closed doors. This is especially unfair for the many Forest Hill residents who use the woods, who have been deprived of a voice.
Felling notices have now been placed on the trees and they could be cut down at anytime from Saturday 2nd November. Please email any objections to the Southwark Council Deputy Leader, Rebecca Lury firstname.lastname@example.org as she is leading on this. Thank you.
