Update – After contacting Wychavon District Council it turns out that the house builders were Bovis, contacted Bovis who said the trees will be replaced in the autumn and will then be looked after by a ‘contractor’.


Money well spent then!

If only it had been conditioned that an appropriate sum of money be transferred to the PC so that local ownership could be established and a small local contract let - or a house owners co-op.


Good for long term aesthetic / amenity / diversity gain (and associated potential house value uplift) and keeping money in the local economy.
