There are young trees growing through the metal railings on Clockhouse Road side alongside the Chaffinch brook. One is a sycamore tree which will damage the metal railings and compromise the river in some way and affect safety. Sycamores can grow huge! There are many large plants that are overhanging the river between Forster and Clockhouse. From Forster Rd these plants are difficult to maintain or prune from own property because of the fences without branches falling into the river. This river needs maintaining please especially in present climate of potential floods!! Thank you.
