Armley Trees campaign invites residents to share concerns

A campaign group opposing trees being cut down next to Armley Park Road are inviting residents to engage with them to ensure that there is a collective voice for the campaign, writes Keely Bannister.

In the latest post on their blog, the Armley Trees group wrote:

“We would like to link up with other residents living on or next to Armley Park Road, to make sure we have a collective voice, to make sure our concerns are heard by Network Rail and to ensure that we are meaningfully involved in what happens next.

“We are organising some opportunities for local residents to come together, before the public meeting with Network Rail takes place.”

Local residents are invited to join campaigners on the green space at the end of Armley Park Road at noon on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th October.

As previously reported in The Dispatch, Network Rail said the tree felling programme was taking place as part of essential safety work.

The Armley Tree group are unhappy with the tree felling for environmental reasons and have also complained about poor and contradictory communication from Network Rail, who have apologised and said the communication ‘was not good enough’.

With help from the Woodland Trust, the group have managed to have constructive engagement with Network Rail, which has led to the mid-week work which was taking place at street level being temporarily halted until an independent review by The Tree Council has taken place.

Campaigners are planning to organise a public meeting after the review has concluded.

People who cannot attend on either the 12th or 13th but who wish to know more/be involved are asked to email Fiona using armleytrees@gmail.com
