Wickham Common – A Good Result in ‘Tree vs. HGV’

NoHGVsignResidents angered by the destruction of a street tree in Wickham Common will be pleased following the successful pursuit of the company responsible for damages.

The tree, near the junction of Harvest Bank Road and Hartfield Road was destroyed by a lorry attempting to turn round, after the driver had realised too late that he was on roads unsuitable for HGVs.

After a considerable amount of work by council officers, with help from members of Wickham Common Residents Association and your local councillors, the company responsible has paid damages of £1,300 to the Council. The planting of a replacement tree is planned to take place shortly.
