Alexandra Park Whalley Range Manchester UK 30 Jan 2013
Residents are now calling for council resignations in the face of the abuse of their power and calling for a judicial inquiry to be made.
Looking like a natural disaster zone this man made arrogant environmental destruction is almost forced through after arresting 1 local resident who tried to save the trees.
He was de- arrested and the council contractors chain saws swung into action yet again yesterday 28th and 29th of January 2013
Watch the video here of cut trees merged with how it looked before the cutting
Mean time the on line petition objecting stands at 2150 at this time
Council just ignores it hell spent on spending the £1.9 million of the residents money and 2.2 million of Heritage Lottery fund money to return parts of the park to how it looked 100 years ago in this madness.
Residents supportive of parts of the plan have been objecting for 2 months now after they found out that 400 trees were going to be cut. Council still continue to deny this in the face of photographic evidence of large mature trees they did not specify in the pretense of 258 trees.
All City Councillors have shirked their real duty to listen to local residents with none prepared to support a stop to this atrocity and support mediation,saying that it is not many trees and that it is only 10 % of park trees when it is 25% to 30% of tree cover being lost. They had agreed to increase tree numbers city wide by 10%
Council has tried to divert any responsibility by blaming the Heritage Lottery fund as demanding the trees be cut or funding would not be provided while the HLF say it not true in an email reply to a local resident and the council are going ahead with cutting any way as fast as possible.
Local residents and shocked and sickened by the arrogance of the council.
In March 2011 they fought the council over its attempted plan to cut 473 street trees in the same area and eventually backed down after residents had to take action when they started cutting trees. Again complaining about lack of real consultation with local residents.
However the same council people have done it again.
Residents are now calling for council resignations in the face of the abuse of their power and calling for a judicial inquiry to made.
