    Is there an arborist report? It is not clear what is planned.

  2. M.McCartney commented

    What is the reason for the removal of these trees? It is difficult for there to be community consultation when the details of the reason for removal are not accessible on the website. Can this information please be provided.
    Given the City of Parramatta Council is committed to the Turn Down the Heat Strategy to minimise urban heat the tree canopy needs to be protected. This will make the environment healthier, energy consumption less and provide a more liveable suburb for future generations to enjoy. At present the Council is approving 100 plus trees for removal each month. This level of tree removal is not sustainable. The Hornsby Shire Council has taken steps to reverse its unsustainable trend of tree removal. Can the City of Parramatta please take similar steps.

    I can only echo the sentiments of the other commentators. The document lodged on Council's web site seems to be just a single-sided drawing there are two trees on the property. There is nothing to indicate why the applicant believes removal is warranted.

    I would suggest that council should not accept an application that does not give the relevant information including species and age(s) of tree(s) together with the reason for proposed removal. No meaningful assessment is possible without this basic information and the application should not have even reached the point of public display.

  1. Have you made a donation or gift to a Councillor or Council employee? You may need to disclose this.

  2. Please use your real full name if possible.

  1. We never display your street address. Why do you need my address?
