Comments:

I am writing on behalf of the Horsham Society. We are always concerned when owners of large trees which were deliberately left intact as part of a redevelopment seek to remove or reduce them. Because of their height and spread such trees perform a particularly valuable role in enhancing the overall street scene, often framing views from a considerable distance. Ideally such trees should be undisturbed but were the Council minded to approve surgery in this case we ask that it should be a little as possible and it should seek to retain the overall shape and proportion of the tree.
