COLSTON'S TREES THREAT: POPLAR FRONT TO REUNITE 26 SEPTEMBER 2009 AT 10.30AM: BE THERE TO SHOW YOU CARE
Colston's Girls' School is the subject of a planning application submitted in May 2009. Supplementary documents have been posted in September which include felling the remaining black poplars, the very same trees which were saved by protesters in 1989. They omitted to mention this tree felling in their original exhibition leaflet too.
The application also includes felling the plane tree on the Cheltenham Road pavement (which is outside the site) and creating a new arts block.
Further works include removing other trees which form part of the street scene, modifications to the listed building, and the demolition of other buildings.
The plans can be viewed online at www.bristol.gov.uk by putting in the planning application number 09/01456/F.
