DA0115/2019 -14-16 St Georges Square EAST LAUNCESTON TAS 7250

I am concerned that the above application doesn't consider the impact of the proposed development on two heritage listed Californian Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) on an adjacent property (https://trusttrees.org.au/tree/TAS/Launceston/Torkington_554_Ann_Street)

The size of these trees (30+m) means that the setback from the boundary is insufficient to avoid damage to the root systems which will likely kill the trees.

The loss of the trees will significantly affect the visual amenity of the area as well as threatening the life and property of the proponent and neighbours.

I believe one of the neighbours already has an arborist's report which may indicate what changes are required before approving the DA
