A local resident alerted Vauxhall Spring to the fact that notices have gone up for tree removal in Bonnington Square:
“I wanted to get in touch as we have just seen the notices about tree removals in Bonnington Square in 2 weeks time and were really shocked. This is for ‘footway resurfacing works’ and they intend to remove all the trees on one side of the square. The trees are what make the square such a special place and we were appalled to see that he council intends to rip them all up, seemingly without consultation with the residents (as far as I’m aware). We wanted to reach out to see what other locals thought about this, and whether anyone had any prior knowledge that this was due to take place.”
