The Greens Win In Nether Edge!

Congratulations to Alison Teal, the Nether Edge Green Councillor and prominent tree campaigner, for retaining her seat and increasing her majority by 1393 votes.

“Labour Councillors have previously claimed they have the democratic mandate for their disastrous plan to fell 17,500 trees. They cannot claim this after today.“
Paul Brooke – Co-Chair STAG Steering Group

The Labour run council also lost a total of four seats to other parties:

Save Nether Edge Trees Supporters’ Meeting – 9th April 2018

The next Save Nether Edge Trees public meeting will be held on Monday 9th April at 8.00pm.

Please note the change of location
The Terrace Rooms of the Kenwood Hall Hotel, Kenwood Road, Nether Edge.

We have no idea whether the current pause in felling will turn into something more permanent. However we need to be prepared for the possibility of negotiations with Sheffield Council and Amey.

So far the agenda includes:

  • How any negotiations might be conducted.
  • What we want to achieve from them.

Save Nether Edge Trees is just one of the local street tree action groups in the city, all of which are in the process of engaging with their supporters about this topic. The aim is to achieve a consensus that represents the majority of views in both our local area and across the city.

Hope to see plenty of you there.

Please arrive by 7.45pm for a prompt start at 8.00pm.

City Hall Rally – Saturday 7th April

A rally is to be held outside Sheffield City Hall next Saturday (7th April). The event, organised by Dave Dillner founder of STAG, will commence with a march around town before finishing back at the City Hall for speeches.

Speakers will include experts in arboricultural, environmental and ecological matters, as well as people from the world of entertainment, including Sheffield’s very own Jarvis Cocker.

Event:       Get Off My Tree
Date:         Saturday 7th April
Time:        9.45am
Location: Sheffield City Hall (Outside)

With the council announcing a pause in felling, and the elections coming up (coincidence?), this is a great opportunity to show the council that you oppose the felling of our healthy street trees. In addition, let’s show the world that despite the violence and intimidatory tactics being used against protesters, we remain a peaceful campaign.

See the STAG Facebook event for details:

Council Pause Tree Felling Again

Sheffield Council has once again paused the tree felling program after yet more criticism.

Secretary of State, Michael Gove has again condemned the councils actions as “environmental vandalism”, saying that he will do “anything required” to help end the felling.

In recent weeks more and more Labour MPs have called for the council to sit down and talk to campaigners. Now Sue Hayman, the Labour Shadow Environment Secretary, has offered to mediate, reportedly with the support of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
