“There has been much publicity about the removal of trees from the site prior to the planning application being considered. The site was not protected by a Tree Preservation Order and LML were not in breach of any other regulations. LML have advised that the clearance was done to actively manage the woodland outside the bird nesting season, to reduce anti-social behaviour and to allow the designs to be further tested.”
