8 November (Part 2) - Weeping over willows

It’s not been a good week for trees in Bexley. The council set out to soften up residents in Bexley Village with a letter before they inflict six months of bridge replacement misery on them. Below is a small section of it.

Trees may be the biggest casualty of Bexley council’s push for growth. Eighteen months ago their Manifesto spoke of 5,000 new homes.
Now the number is up to 21,500. ‘The Listening Council’ forgot to consult about that.
