Halstead: Neighbours win ash tree campaign

CO83311_02 hg tree sh.jpg NEIGHBOURS will be celebrating after an application to chop down a huge tree was withdrawn.
Residents in Alderford Street, Sible Hedingham, had been campaigning to save the ash tree which stands next to the 18th century Alderford Mill.
Braintree Council had applied to chop the tree down and replace it with three other trees, if needed, in order to divert a nearby stream while a footbridge was built across it.
But after petitioning by the residents the district council withdrew its application last Thursday.
