Re: planning DC 028122


Thank you for your e-mail. I have passed a copy of it onto the Council’s
Tree Officer (Jim McGarrie) as well as to our Enforcement Officer (Dave
Westhead) asking them to visit the site as soon as possible and advise
the college that the trees be protected before any further works are
carried out. I will also contact the college and their advisors this
afternoon to discuss the matter with them.

Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention.

Dear elected members,

I write to you with regards to your agreed
planning application number DC 028122 for Aquinas college. Work has
commenced on this new build and I would like to know who will be
policing this as the conditions of the planning application are not been

I draw your attention to condition number 5 below

5. No development shall take place until all existing trees
on the site except those shown to be removed on the approved plans, have been
fenced off at the limit of branch spread in accordance with BS:5837
‘Trees In Relation To Construction’ (1991). The fencing shall be
retained during the period of construction and no work, excavation,
tipping or stacking of materials shall take place within any such fence
during the construction period.
Reason: In the interests of the visual amenities of the area and having
regard to policies DCD1, DCD1.1 and DCD1.4 of the Stockport Unitary
Development Plan Review.

Work has commenced and we had had deliveries of Material, excavation
work had been carried out and yet our trees are going unprotected.

As a responsible council I trust you will ensure this matter is
rectified right away, and pass on the details of the person who is in
control of making sure the conditions are not accidentally broken again.
