Please be very alert this week, Amey felling crews could pop up almost anywhere.
It’s been a long and involving day across the city. We have seen the biggest attempted felling under this programme so far. We have had some losses in other parts of the city, but thanks to solid work on St Ronan’s Rd, none in our area.
We have seen new ‘legal’ notices put in place by SCC/Amey and signed by the Amey Operations Manager. These notices tell people that they are breaking the law by preventing ‘lawful’ felling or by simply entering the work area without permission. Neither of these claims is true. Such actions are perfectly lawful.
If people want to get involved in our peaceful, polite, actions against tree felling then please get in touch here as we need all the help we can get tomorrow and for the future. There is nothing to be afraid of, no-one has ever broken the law in our campaign, no-one has been convicted or even faced trial, no-one has faced any civil actions, and no-one has done anything other than prevent appalling acts on our city’s environment and ecology. If you’ve been thinking about getting involved then tomorrow may just be the time to do so.
