The council hope felling the trees will open up the park, improving views to and from the town centre and town hall, reducing anti-social behaviour and allowing more people to use the gardens.But in Canvey Island, they prevent anti-social behaviour, and must be planted:
Six maple trees which currently hide the fountain along the northern boundary and two cherry trees along the southern boundary are to be felled.
More than 40 trees will be planted on Canvey to try to combat antisocial behaviour.Confused? I am!
Castle Point Council has been given a £3,000 grant from Chelmsford charity Fowler, Smith and Jones to plant the trees along First and Second avenues.
Residents asked for the area to be tidied up in an effort to improve people’s behaviour.
Is it a North/South thing?
