On the drive to
work this morning I noticed that three of the 18 new trees along the
Ranolf St cycleway have been snapped in half over the weekend. They're between
St Mary's School and Devon St. I was just hoping to check 1) if this had been
reported to you and 2) if there has been any other vandalism in the area reported
to you from the weekend.
Rob Pitkethley – Sport, Recreation and Environment Manager:
damage to the trees was reported to Council this morning.
always disappointing when community assets are vandalised. Council is working
to enhance our neighbourhoods and make them attractive places to live. It was
an important part of the Ranolf shared path design that trees were retained and
we have had a lot of feedback about how great the area was looking.
trees is not unknown to council. We have had issues in several community
orchards with trees being stolen or damaged. The orchards are often shared
projects between council and schools or community groups so it is disappointing
due to the impact on the local neighbourhoods.
