No street trees

There are no street trees in this end section of the drive near the avenue. Most recently due to a council bin lorry knocking one over. It makes it look very barren and will attract antisocial behaviour. I contacted a while ago now and was told it would be added to a planting schedule can you confirm that this has been done for this year, as apparently it missed last years. I have noticed all the roads around us getting new trees, so please focus on this section now as it is very much needed and lack of trees was in part due to a council PE part meant who knocked one down! I look forward to receding confirmation that we will have additional trees planted and if you can confirm timeframe? Thanks
Thank you for your report, this is now being investigated. Information on our services and the timeframes we aim to respond in can be found: http://www.bromley.gov.uk/ fixservices

Hi we have had the sticks in the places where trees are due for months now, but still no actual trees. I am concerned as we are a smaller road we have been forgotten about. When will the trees actually be planted within The Drive?

Thank you for the enquiry, the planting season runs from November 2021 to the end of April 2022, a new tree will be planted with in this timeframe. Sadly I can not be more specific as the time of planting is down to the contractor.

I am confused as to what is happening. Last time I wrote we had two wooden poles in the two planting spots shown in the photo, since then one tree has been planted which is appreciated. However, the other was left bare with just the pole. Now there is no wooden pole at all in the far right planting spot (see pic). so I am now concerned it is not being replaced. This tree was knocked down by a council rubbish truck, so at the very least the council should make it a priority to replace this one?! Why is it the only one that hasn't been planted? I look forward to hearing from you thanks

Thank you for the enquiry, the pole has most likely be removed by vandals, if this location is not planted this season it will be placed on the next planting season, this runs from November 2022 to April 2023.
This would be helpful with the longevity of the tree planting programme, staggering the planting of multiple trees will help the growth pattern of the area. Bromley Borough Council are planting 1250 new trees every year for the next 4 years, we can not plant every location in the first year.

All the other trees on the road were planted, pole removed similar time to when planting occurred of other trees so unlikely vandals, so please can you check to ensure that this hasn't been missed or what reason is, as seems strange that this was the only tree not planted on the street. It was promised this was on the list for planting this year and the council bin lorry did uproot it, so I would have thought this should be a priority to replace. I was assured by this department that this would occur this planting season and it doesn't appear to be the case now, so I would appreciate some clarification and more firm reassurance as to whether it will happen this season or if not why not given all others have been and the council caused the previous trees demise!

Thank you for the enquiry, the tree pit mentioned is down on the current list, some of the tree pits where not able to be used for various reasons. Once we receive the final planting list from our contractors we will be able to find out exactly why the tree pit has not been used. We will receive the list once they have completed the planting.
