    Is this tree removal request in preparation for a development application (DA)? If this is the case the proponent should be encouraged to lodge the tree removal as part of their DA. It does not seem to make sense that they want to plant the replacement trees on the sewer line. I therefore object to the removal of these two trees.
    There is also nothing to show that the neighbour has agreed to have their tree pruned. Surely the neighbour needs to be consulted. I therefore object to the pruning of the tree until consent is given by the neighbour.

    This application is not in preparation for a DA. We redeveloped our property over 7 years ago. The camphor laurel is a noxious plant with its roots growing, cracking the retaining walls and too close to the sewer line. The diagram is not to scale and therefore proposal to plant 3 new trees vertically along our side boundary would not be on top of the horizontally running sewer line as there is ample space. I also note the Parramatta DCP does not require neighbours consent to prune overhanging branches from a neighbours tree when it can be accessed from my own property.

    I think this application is reasonable. The level of detail provided is refreshing.

  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?
