    This resident lives in a Vegetation PROTECTION overlay. As such I object to its removal.

    Yet again, the Bayside Planning Register fails to allow access to documentation regarding this application. All one can see is that in 2007, presumably when the previous house was demolished and the new one built, that 5 VPO protected trees were approved for removal. There is just one significantly sized canopy tree remaining on this block, so presumably this is the one being applied for removal - what appears to be a mature and healthy Eucalypt.

    Was there no landscaping plan in 2007 to replant canopy trees? Or has the owner(s) failed to replant as per their landscaping plan?

    Removal of the last remaining canopy tree on this site would be another significant loss to local amenity and habitat. As per Council's commitments to it's Urban Forest Strategy and Climate Emergency policies, this tree should be retained.

    If it need a prune for safety reasons, then the owner should engage a reputable arborist.
