In Stanmore NSW on “To demolish part of the...” at 11 Stafford Street Stanmore NSW 2048:

>>vThe proposed additions and alterations shall impact upon Tree 3 Callistemon viminalis (syn. Melaleuca viminalis) (Weeping Bottlebrush),

We have submitted a letter supporting the removal of the the tree in question [see above]

Our main objection being damage done by the tree roots to pavers, making the area where roots extend dangerous underfoot. These areas have been remediated four times since 2007, but the tree has doubled in size since that time, roots now extend further into the garden proper and are getting larger and more extensive, to the point where some areas are inaccessible.

Cost of replacing damaged water pipes was in excess of $11,000. Lifting of pavers alongside the side fence has been costly to remediate, and quickly needs further work.

The canopy encroaches westward over our roof preventing installation of planned solar panels, there is also a risk of damage to our existing solar water heater from falling branches.

If the tree is removed these problems will, we feel, disappear, as will the risk to our health and safety.
