Report re Footway and Tree Root Investigation for London Plane tree T5 due to be felled in London Road Canterbury on October 12th

We're waiting for Helen Applegarth to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Kent County Council,
Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 please send me a copy of the report re the footway and tree root investigation for London Plane Tree T5 adjacent 63 London Road Canterbury which you intend to fell on October 12th.

I request this because I cannot see any evidence that an investigation has taken place. No tarmac has been removed to ascertain whether it is the tarmac itself pushed outwards by the lateral growth of the tree that is causing the problem in which case the tree would not need felling.

Yours faithfully,
Helen Applegarth
