Oak trees in Queen’s Wood – an update
Further discussions are taking place with AXA UK about the four Oak trees in Queen’s Wood and we welcome the agreement that no action will be taken by any party for at least four weeks.
We will be meeting with representatives from AXA and are keen to work with them to explore any other options available.
Cllr Kirsten Hearn, Cabinet Member for Climate Change and Sustainability, said:
Like the campaigners, I do not want these trees to go. The Council is committed to working with AXA to explore all options.
This latest announcement means that while experts examine the feasibility of other approaches, and the chances of success for them, no action will be taken for at least four weeks from today (Friday 21 August).
We will continue to engage with the campaigners in this time. We will keep the wider community updated on this webpage.
Further background information on this case can be viewed in the news items published on 15 July & 30 July on this website.
