Minutes:

The Committee considered the draft order and two objections to the confirmation without modification of the text, but with modification to the location plan, of Oxford City Council - 11 Forest Road (No.1) Tree Preservation Order (TPO) 2019 applying to a common beech tree, shown in a black circle on the Tree Preservation Order plan as T1 at 11 Forest Road, Oxford.

 

The planning officer displayed a plan showing the correct location for T1, slightly further away from 11 Forest Road than the plan in the report.

 

Kim Webb, local resident, spoke objecting to the confirmation of the order emphasising the detrimental impact on those living in the immediate vicinity of the tree. Joanna Chai, local resident, came to the table and was available to answer questions.

 

The Committee considered the wider amenity value of the tree as seen from the public realm and the detrimental impact of the tree on the residents of 9, 11 and 13 Forest Road. In particular they considered the impact of the tree on these residents’ ability to use their gardens; options for maintenance; wider public views and on the immediate ecology and wider environment.

 

A proposal to confirm the TPO, on being seconded and put to the vote, was declared lost.

 

A proposal was put to not confirm the TPO on the grounds that there was not enough evidence that the public amenity value of the tree outweighed the detriment to the residents of 9, 11 and 13 Forest Road.  On being seconded and put to the vote, this was declared carried.

 

East Area Planning Committee resolved not to confirm the Oxford City Council – 11 Forest Road (No.1) Tree Preservation Order 2019.
