Board Comment

In considering this report, the Board sought and received comment from staff on the matters raised in the two deputations and the letter from Prudence Steven QC.

17. Westhaven - Tree Condition and Impact on Infrastructure

 

Board Comment

Staff advised of the possibility of completing tree removals in summer and replacing in winter, thus splitting the cost over two financial years. The Board noted that the community input is required to determine the pace.  There are 24 streets involved and 314 trees of which 168 require removal.  Some 35 trees will not be able to be replaced because of spacing constraints. Staff advised that the trees replanted would be 2.5 – 3m in size.

The Board noted that when a tree replacement/landscape plan is produced it would need to come to the Board for approval.

 

Staff Recommendations 

That the Coastal-Burwood Community Board:

1.         Approve the strategy to replace all trees in question with more suitable species in a more suitable location, where possible.

a.         A letter to inform the residents about the outcome of the Boards decision is going to be delivered to all residents affected.

b.         Seeking resident’s views via an information leaflet in regard to the impact the operation will have on their property/the wider community and choice of replacement trees, where replanting is possible.

c.         A summary of the comments from participating residents will be evaluated and a tree replacement plan produced, for a final review by the residents.

 

Community Board Decided CBCB/2017/00164

Part C

That the Coastal-Burwood Community Board:

1.         Receives the information about the strategy to replace all trees in question in the Westhaven subdivision as a consequence of infrastructure damage to kerb, footpaths and private properties, with more suitable species in a more suitable location, where possible, and approves:

a.         A letter to inform the residents about the outcome of the Board’s decision to be delivered to all residents affected

b.         Seeking resident’s feedback via an information leaflet in regard to the impact the operation will have on their property/the wider community and choice of replacement trees, where replanting is possible

c.         A summary of the comments from participating residents will be evaluated and a tree replacement plan/ landscape plan produced, for a final review by the residents.
