What on earth is going on with H&F Council's plans for Shepherds Bush Green? It appears, from signs erected yesterday on the Green, that a serious number of trees will be chopped down to make way for a Cafe, which our friends the local rat population will be delighted about!
But quite apart from that it now appears that their plans are directly at odds with London Mayor Boris Johnson's approach for Hammersmtih and Fulham - which is to plant MORE trees here because as a Borough we do not have nearly enough! Hammersmith & Fulham is now officially a 'priority area' for more tree planting.
So we have a Tory Council disagreeing, and pursuing policies opposed to, a Tory Mayor. Of the two, I'm on Boris' side of the argument. We need more not less trees. Where do you stand and what should we do about it?
