No trees had been replanted at Cumberland Avenue by the required deadline of 15 November 2013 specified in the official Tree Replacement Notice. HCWG therefore wrote to Councillor Dick Walsh, Leader of Argyll and Bute Council, and Councillor David Kinniburgh, Chair of the Planning, Protective Services and Licensing, requesting that the Council take all necessary steps to ensure that there was no further delay in compliance with the Tree Replacement Notice. Swift initial replies were received from both councillors confirming that planning officers would investigate the landowners’ failure to observe the Tree Replacement Notice and report to the appropriate Council committee.
