In response to residents’ fears about the loss of trees on Crossfields Green, Tideway has agreed to provide twice as many replacements once the work is completed. In addition, they also propose to plant an unspecified number of semi-mature trees close by, as soon as possible.
In an effort to establish them before the planting season ends, Lewisham Council’s tree officer has suggested three possible locations: within the Crossfield Estate, Ferranti Park and Margaret McMillan Park. She and the Project Manager for the area, Adam Platts, will be leading a walkabout at 11am on 16 January to discuss the best locations and species. Interested residents are invited to meet at the corner of Bronze Street and Deptford Church Street, opposite Crossfield Green.
