Planning Application NP/TCA/0522/0600
Decision: Accept
Decision: Accept


The tree is a silver birch, located towards the north end of the United Reform Church graveyard, to the rear of 94 Old Road, Tintwistle. It has grown significantly over the last 2/3 years and is closely adjacent to some very old, large and historic gravestones in the oldest part of the graveyard. The concern is that the tree will eventually undermine the foundations of the headstones. I wish (on behalf of United Reform Church) to fell the tree, store the logs from it and burn them on my log burner in my house. I have written permission from the Church to forward this application and to fell the tree, should this be granted. I have been in touch with the Tree Department in HPBC for some time bt have not had a reply as I understand the previous holder of this role has left the Council. I propose to plant two oak trees to replace this tree, towards the far eastern side of the graveyard and well away from any existing or proposed headstones.
