Tree Preservation Orders

New Tree Preservation Orders - October 2009

Malvern Hills District Council have advised the Parish Council that they have made two Tree Preservation Orders in respect of a Lime tree at 21 Old Road South and a Sycamore tree at 25 Old Road South. The Order came into force on a temporary basis in October and will remain in force for 6 months during which time the District Council will decide whether it should be given permanent status. People affected by the Order have a right to object or make comments on either of the trees before the District Council decide if it should be made permanent. In simple terms, a Tree Preservation Order means that no one is allowed to cut down, top or lop a tree without permission. Any parishioner wishing to comment on these Orders should Mr. C. Lewis-Farley, Landscape Officer, Planning Services, The Council House, Avenue Road, Malvern WR14 3AF.

MHDC is introducing a new service to complement our Duty Planning Officer facility.

Let's not beat around the bush, dog mess is the unpleasant but unavoidable by-product of owning a dog.

We all carry our mobile phone with names & numbers stored in its memory. If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill.

The Environment Agency has published a very readable booklet on matters relating to flooding and its prevention.

None reported at present.
