CHURCH Langley residents have secured the transfer of a number of trees that were planted on a popular play area.
As reported earlier this week, a popular play area had a number of trees planted in an area outside Henry Moore school near Kiln Lane. Residents had no objections to the trees but it was a spot where the children used to play football.
Councillor Mark Wilkinson, Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “In all 11 wards in Harlow, trees are being planted that represent the five Olympic rings. These trees will help improve the environment but will also be a lasting memory of when the country hosted the 2012 Olympic Games and the town celebrated this once-in-a-lifetime occasion.
This is being funded as part of the ward improvements programme. Ward Councillors were advised of proposed locations well in advance of planting and agreed the locations including Church Langley. We have now agreed to move the trees in Church Langley to another location and Ward Councillors are in the process of talking to residents to agree an alternative location. The trees’ relocation will be carried by the local contractor which planted them, the cost of which will be kept to a minimum and come out of existing budgets.”
