Annoyed protesters gathered this morning in Formby’s rain-soaked village, to say ‘No ‘ to Sefton Council’s controversial tree felling plans.
According to the Council data pinned to trees 6 specimens are set to be axed. Red dots on their chart indicate the trees they want to destroy.
Questions on public lips remain valid. Have lawfully-required bird and bat surveys been properly addressed and presented? What are the options for merely pruning these lovely trees rather than just felling them?
These majestic trees form a large part of the village's heritage and cannot just be dismissed with the swipe of some official pen.

These days councils are too quick to fell (rather than repair) trees and the public want answers...
Remember last January?
