  1. This is appalling! Is there no recourse for the public ? Can their objections be listened to and factored into the ultimate decision? some platform accessible to those who object?

  2. Technotronic says:

    If anybody has any complaints regarding tree work done by Amey on behalf of the council, and wants answers from the people directly responsible, you need to contact Amey via the council’s website: https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/roads/works/schemes/streetsaheadproject.html .

    You will be prompted to e-mail streetsahead@sheffield.gov.uk or telephone customer services on: (0114) 2734567.

    This is the best way to get answers. Councillors are unfamiliar with the details and at best will just fob you off with general schpeel. They are not knowledgeable or familiar with arboricultural matters. To the best of my knowledge, Sheffield council has not actually formally adopted a specific Tree Strategy. One has been in development for a few years now!

    If you are not happy with the answers you get, then contact your councillor. 😉

    If anybody would like to get a better idea about Amey’s tree work, I recommend you visit the Stocksbridge Community Forum and type in a key word in to the search box (such as “tree” or “Amey”).
