Getting things done - Pentland Avenue and Scott Street

Residents have mentioned to me the overgrown trees that sit at the far west end of Scott Street are now so high that they protrude across the south pavement of Pentland Avenue.

I took at this concern with the City Council and the Assistant Forestry Officer has updated me as follows :

"I have inspected the trees along the south side of Pentland Ave as per your constituents' enquiry.  

There are a number of trees and other vegetation that is beginning to obstruct headroom and encroach the footway for pedestrians, (Scott street junction to City Road junction). 

My intention will be to crown lift and prune/trim back these trees to make an improvement for pedestrians using the south side footway. 

The works will be included in our work programme or added to the local area ground maintenance programme and carried out as soon as reasonably possible."
