Gurnites will remember the controversial tree surgery on the overgrown hedging bordering the A96 next to the industrial estate. In March at the Suburban Community Council meeting it was claimed that the polish tree surgeons had left the scene after a visit from the police. At the time the police representitive present at the meeting said that he had no knowledge of such an incident but would find out if that what had been stated was in fact the case
At the latest meeting last week it emerged that the police had in fact visited the site while work was ongoing due to a complaint from a member of the public but had found everything in order. Now, further to other complaints about the work and the loss of visual amenity BEAR have planted a large number of similar conifers next to the row that received attention from the saw doctors. It looks very impressive to this observer and if managed as a hedge it will make a suitable nesting site for some birds.
