An update on progress of Sudbury Tree Planting projects.

 

As suggested at last STRA meeting, Councillor Daly and Martin Page (Brents Pricipal Landscape Architect) met to decide which of the Sudbury Ward streets should be first priority for planting this year. They used criteria of which were most in need of new trees and which had the longest standing requests.

So in Sudbury Ward they felt the top priorities were:

 

Homefield Road - Whitebeams (Sorbus intermedia 'Brouwers)

Rugby Avenue - Pink Flowering Cherries

Eton Avenue - White Flowering Cherries

Farm Avenue - Silver Birch

 

Note that Medway Gardens will also be planted under a separate Highways project next year.

 

All the other roads suggested will be looked at in detail over the summer with aim of planting next year. Note that Brent don't have funds secured yet and will need to apply next year.

 

In Northwick Park Ward:

Martin aims to concentrate on Sudbury Court Drive as that road is exceptionally bleak, losing most of its trees over last few years.

 

We also have a special planting in Elms Lane, the Conservation Foundation has been running a project 'Great British Elm Experiment' to propagate and plant Elm trees with resistance to Dutch Elm disease.

 

www.conservationfoundation.co.uk/elm

 

Martin managed to secure some of these trees and intend to plant on the green area halfway up Elms Lane, this is provisionally arranged for Thursday afternoon, 16th, if anyone would like to attend. We will try make a ceremony of this and see if we can get a picture in the local paper.

 

As we hope to continue this project next year, any further suggestions for tree planting locations will be welcome, consultation remains open over the spring and summer.

Vale Farm Sports Centre

 

On the 18th January STRA met with Brent Council to discuss their plans for Vale Farm. The basic outcomes were

(1) There are no immediate plans to rebuild the Leisure Centre
(2) Vale Farm must only be developed for sport or cultural purposes and that is because of the Neighbourhood plan
(3) If there was a feasibility study carried out, STRA would be consulted from the outset
