Rapid response

Published on: 28 Aug 2013

QUICK action by residents and South Gloucestershire Council prevented damage to protected trees off Cleeve Hill last month.

A neighbour noticed that workers were cutting back branches in a lane off Cleeve Hill and called the council.

Officers visited the site and halted the work, pointing out that the trees were subject to preservation orders.

A council spokeswoman confirmed that officers had prevented any further trees being cut back and said the authority was taking legal advice.

The lane leads to a site that is thought to have been sold for development.
