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
