Members discussed the green street scene; what trees had TPOs and whether removing all the vegetation at this time of year would inhibit the retention of vegetation and trees that should be preserved in a conservation area; Safety arrangements were queried, it was important to ensure the safety of pupils and pedestrians as it would be near an extremely busy road especially at peak times.  

 

The Chairman noted his appreciation for the work undertaken by Councillor Charmaine Morgan to establish the St Anne’s Area of Grantham as a conservation area.
