Street Trees

Following the public consultation over last year’s Brockley localities fund, it was decided that a good proportion of the £10,000 available should be spent on trees.

Since then, the Council has been working to identify appropriate sites in the area and have already allocated some of the trees (though at present, Brockley Central is not sure which spots have already been targeted).

However, five trees remain unallocated and Cllr Darren Johnson has asked us to publish this message from him, to get your thoughts about where the trees should be planted. He'll be checking the site for your comments.

The sites obviously all need to be in the Brockley ward and should benefit as many people as possible.

We’ll also be asking for details of the “metal railings” that will accompany the trees, as the design will play an important role in determining the success of this exercise:

Is your street grey and dull rather than green and leafy as Brockley streets should be? Is there gap outside your house where a tree used to proudly stand but has long since been removed? If so, Brockley councillors still have some money left to allocate for tree planting in Brockley Ward as part of this year's Ward "Locality Fund". If you have any suggestions as to where you would like to see more street trees planted then let us know via this blog. We have funding for five decent-sized new street trees with protective metal railings to help them get established.
