How many trees and hedges will have to come down?
The vast majority of trees and hedgerows will be retained in the development proposals (in the order of 89% of trees and 83% of hedgerows will be retained); these will be protected during construction. These features have been incorporated into green corridors or open spaces. The proposals include substantial tree and hedgerow planting in the streets and in the open spaces. Detailed landscaping proposals will be developed later in the planning process which will significantly increase the number of trees and hedgerow on site.
