Dear all,

December Update

Hooper Street Trees under threat– Cambridge CB1 2NZ Mill Road – 18/584/TTPO

Deadline for comments tomorrow!  17 Dec

We have received an urgent message from the Mill Road Community asking for your support. There is a planning application for the pruning and felling of much loved horse-chestnut trees in Hooper Street, a conservation area. The applicants are Edward Le Bas Properties Ltd.

See link below.

Many local residents have submitted objections on the Cambridge City Council planning portal. You need to register to comment. It is a good idea to type out your answer first just in case the planning portal times out.

Residents say other trees in Hooper Street have already been lost; so each remaining tree is very precious. This is a heavily built up area of the city. The trees are a green ‘lung’ in addressing air pollution and climate change.

Montreal Square Residents Association

Update : Montreal Square tell us there will be a decision about their future at the end of January. They would really appreciate letters of support to the Cambridge Housing Society to help them save their homes and the green space and wildlife of the communal square and gardens. This is a ward with very little green space.We will be in touch again about this.
