Wellingborough’s avenue of mature lime trees known as The Walks should have the same level of protection as historic buildings; preserved and maintained as “natural monuments” with so many benefits for local residents and the potential for more benefits for the local economy too. We believe that North Northamptonshire Council should be protecting our natural heritage, not allowing contractors to destroy it.
Wellingborough Walks has been damaged and fragmented by the developers behind Stanton Cross. 15 trees have been felled and that damage cannot be repaired. You cannot re-root mature trees. But the remaining trees can be saved. With the developers planning to cut down up to 30 more trees according to plans put forward at last week’s consultation event, Wellingborough residents say enough is enough.
On Thursday 30th March, North Northamptonshire Council are holing a full council meeting at Corby Cube, many of us from the Save Our Trees campaign are going and we want you to come too! The meeting starts at 6pm, but we are aiming to get there at 5pm to greet the councillors.
Corby is miles away, so instead of us all driving up there we are urging people to use public transport or car share. To facilitate this, if you need a lift or could offer someone a lift please fill in the form below:
