    As a resident most directly affected by the Fergusson Crescent frontage of number 16, my comment is directed to the proposed removal of four mature trees that are significant to the streetscape. These are the trees numbered in the supplied Tree Survey as 1, 2, 3 (on the Fergusson Crescent frontage) and number 5 (on the Gawler Crescent frontage).

    Retention of these trees would appear to have only a trivial affect on the proposed building works, but would significantly soften the impact of the stark new townhouse terrace on streetscape viewed both from Fergusson Crescent and from Gawler Crescent.

    Tree number 1 in particular marks and visually defines the Fergusson/Gawler corner of the block. It is noted in the Tree Survey as being "on a mound". In fact this tree is rooted in, and stabilises, the embanked berm that for decades has protected the relevant block from flooding by stormwater that runs down Gawler Crescent and overflows the street guttering on occasions when there is sustained heavy rain. This berm redirects such floodwater to the main stormwater sump on the footpath close to Number 16 Fergusson Crescent.

    I believe this application should not be approved without proper consultation with the ACT Tree Conservator.
