TPO Appeal Monday 23rd April and associated demonstration

APPEALS COMMITTEE – MONDAY, 23 APRIL 2012, AT 2.00 P.M., LANCASTER TOWN HALL

REGARDING TREE PRESERVATION ORDER NO. 496

WOODLAND ESTABLISHED ON LAND WEST OF LUNE INDUSTRIAL ESTATE, LANCASTER, KNOWN LOCALLY AS FREEMANS WOOD

An Appeals Committee meeting is due to take place on Monday, 23 April 2012 at 2.00 p.m. at Lancaster Town Hall to consider the appeal against Tree Preservation Order No. 496 (2011).

Supporters of the TPO who emailed the council to express their concern over the violation of the TPO by SATNAM’s  contractors have been invited to attend the appeals committee hearing on Monday but for everyone else, there has been a demonstration organised by members of the Green Party and Occupy starting at 1.15 outside Lancaster town hall. In the words of one Occupier:

“Those not on the invite-list into the [Mon 23rd April, 2pm Council] meeting can still play their part by showing councillors and the press how strongly local people matter. These things are the thin end of a wedge. Each loss makes the wider public cynical and hopeless. So if you care about local green space, this matters.”

For more info on the TPO, see Lancaster Guardians article ‘Bid to save city centre woodland’ published online on Friday 20th April, in the Media Coverage category of this blog.
