Nationally the Conservative Government promised to plant more Trees. See here at this article on the BBC Website.
We have an opportunity here in Bramcote if we allow the building of houses on the Playing Field off Coventry Lane we could insist upon a strip of land 50 metres wide along side and to the West of Moor Lane. On this strip of land Trees could be planted to enhance the area and provide a Wildlife Corridor linking the Trees by the Old Canal and Railway Line in the north with the Bramcote Ridge in the south.
