On the matter of the chestnut trees, the Parish Council is monitoring both trees on an annual basis. This is a significant cost in itself, and the Parish Council has concluded that, when the monitoring reports advise that further major works are needed to either tree for safety reasons, then consideration should be given at that point to having that tree taken down. In the meantime, the Parish Council is looking at how to ensure that The Green retains its character for future generations to enjoy by planting replacement trees well in advance of any action.
We would be pleased to hear comments from any parishioner. Please send them to the Clerk, Sharon Foster, 1 London Road, Daventry, NN11 4DA, or submit below
