Consultation About A Tree Damaging Infrastructure on Cliffefield Road opposite 44 / outside 15 (our reference 12045579)

Closed 11 Jul 2022

Opened 20 Jun 2022

Results expected 12 Jul 2022

Feedback expected 13 Jul 2022


An Acer pseudoplatanus (commonly known as a Sycamore Tree) has been identified on Cliffefield Road Opposite 44 / Outside 15 as irreperably damaging highway infrastructure.

An assessment carried out by aboricultural surveyors and highway engineers has resulted in a scenario where Amey cannot design a workable solution to provide a usable footway. 

A number of meetings have been held with SCC which have resulted in the decision being taken to consult on replacement as a last resort now that all other options have been explored 

If removed, we propose to replace the tree with a Cercis silliquastrum (Judas tree) which will be planted in a verge centrally outside-between 61-63 Northcote Road.

This has been relocated to a requested position due to proximity of multiple driveways and access points at the original position.
