Cambridge City Council's Arboricultural Strategy

Cambridge City Council did not have the information requested.

Richard Taylor

Could you please release a copy of, or link to, Cambridge City Council's current Arboricultural Strategy. This document has often been referred to recently in council papers (1) and by councillors (2).

I would like to suggest the policy, if it exists, ought be published on the city councils website and linked from the council's policies page (3), and the historic buildings & trees pages (4).

In the event that there is no current document could you please release:

i/ The 2000-2007 Arboricultural Strategy

ii/ Amendments made to the 2000-2007 Arboricultural Strategy since 2000

iii/ Details of any formal decision made to extend the 2000-2007 strategy into 2008 and 2009 along with any plans for future reviews.
