Following on from the public meeting at Coalbrookdale Community Centre in November 2022 and the subsequent woodland site visit, we have listened to people’s concerns and have decided to change the scope of the works in Dale Coppice.
The proposed tree works to be undertaken are now only related to public safety.
The beech trees that have been marked up have been badly affected by squirrel damage. The damage can often be seen clearly from the ground, in the videos we commissioned and in the findings of our independent arboriculture consultant’s report.
The Trust has put a huge amount of time, effort and resources into this and any comments on these works should now be submitted to the Planning Department at Telford & Wrekin Council.”
This approach has been agreed between the staff and Trustees of the Severn Gorge Countryside Trust.
