Dear Hastings Borough Council,

In 2020 the Woodland Trust published its Emergency Tree Plan for the UK (see: https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/publica...). The plan recommended councils:
1. Write an Emergency Tree Plan to identify land for trees, and set annual expansion targets, whilst protecting existing native woodland and trees.
2. Ensure all development land includes a minimum 30% tree canopy cover.

Please provide under EIR

1. A copy of HBCs Emergency Tree Plan
2. A copy of any HBC documents that identify land for trees, set expansion targets or detail protection measures for existing trees
3. Documents describing measures that have been taken by HBC to ensure all development land includes a minimum 30% tree canopy cover.
4. A catalogue of trees that are owned by HBC describing location and species of tree
5. Maps of the trees owned by HBC

Yours faithfully,

Chris Hurrell

Information Officer, Hastings Borough Council
