Planning and Rights of Way (PROW) panel paperwork explains that a tree survey was carried out for the airport by an independent arboricultural consultant resulting in recommendations for work on a number of protected trees.

All but one of the trees are located to the rear of properties in Moat Hill, St Helena Gardens and Maryland Close, to the south of the permissive path.

Council officers are recommending to grant consent for only some of the proposed work, saying they believe allowing it all would “have resulted in work deemed unnecessary being completed”.

The detailed report by officers to the panel looking at plans for specific trees, along with a site map, is available on Southampton City Council’s website [item 7 6] – to be decided by councillors at the PROW meeting on Tuesday, June 27 from 4pm at the Civic Centre.

Streaming details aren’t given at the time of writing.
