The first Sheffield streets which will be referred to an independent tree panel amid the ongoing felling controversy have been confirmed.
Households across the city have received surveys asking for residents’ views on planned tree felling as part of Sheffield Council’s roads contract with Streets Ahead.
If more than half of respondents have concerns, then an independent tree panel - launched last November - will consider the street again.
The council has today confirmed the remaining members of the panel as arboricultural consultant Andy Bagshaw, health and safety consultant Phillip Duckett, David Graham, the managing director of a firm which delivers road safety and traffic engineering services as well as independent panel member Jacquie Stubbs.
Also, some 36 streets out of those already surveyed across the city have been referred back to the panel, although the council will still make a final decision.
Panel chairman Andy Buck said the panel would be meeting ‘in the coming weeks’ to discuss evidence and residents’ concerns.
