War Memorial Trees Saved!

Good news! As a result of STAG’s negotiations with Sheffield Council, 32 of the 35 threatened War Memorial Trees have been saved.  

“In this, the week of Remembrance Day, I am confirming that we have developed a plan to retain 32 of the 35 war memorial trees that were originally earmarked for replacement.”

Councillor Lewis Dagnall

The remaining three, which are reportedly too diseased to retain, are currently being independently investigated.

The talks with the council are still ongoing, but the negotiating team requested that the news be announced prior to Armistice Day on the 11th November.

Mediated Talks With The Council

It is now 7 months since a health street tree has been felled in Sheffield. Over the subsequent months the campaign has been engaged with Sheffield council, hoping to find an amicable solution to the mess our city has found itself in with regard to it’s street trees.

Eventually the council agreed to enter into mediated talks with representatives from the campaign. But with only three days of talks having been scheduled. Many people have assumed that an an agreement has to reached by the end of the third day, and are worried about what that might mean for the campaign.

Sheffield People’s Petition

Many of us have been outraged by Sheffield Council’s plans for the city’s street trees, and appalled by it’s handling of the resultant protests.

The council currently operates using a ‘Strong Leader Model’. This means that many important decisions are made behind close doors, by just the council leader and the nine members of the cabinet, with the remaining councillors have no input. This effectively means that it is highly likely that your elected representative, and by extension you, have no voice on many important issues, including those affecting our environment.

Today the ‘It’s Our City’ campaign group have launched the ‘Sheffield Peoples Petition’. If just 5% of Sheffield residents sign, it will trigger a referendum on how our city council is run, and possibly force the council to adopt a more democratic governance model. One based on greater accountability and transparency.

“We, the undersigned, being local government electors for the area of Sheffield City Council, to whom this petition is addressed, seek a referendum on whether the council should be run in a different way by one or more committees made up of elected councillors.” – It’s Our City

I urge all Sheffield residents to sign the petition. This is an great opportunity to change and influence the way our city is run, in a way that goes way beyond the issue of street trees.
