MP welcomes commitment over new trees along Baldock Street

Following his representations, North East Herts  MP, Sir Oliver Heald, has welcomed news that Redrow will plant more new trees than they felled and with a landscaping plan to be agreed with North Herts District Council after consultation with Royston Town Council and the Conservators of the Heath.

Commenting,Sir Oliver, who is a Royston resident, said “Like most Roystonians, I was disappointed to see the trees had been cut down and I am pleased that the Council has insisted on a landscaping plan based on a ratio of 3 new trees for each one lost. This should leave us better placed environmentally and with a good selection of tree species. The new trees will include a mix of maturity.”
