Well Park trees to be protected by North Somerset Council order

Trees in an area of Congresbury wil be protected by North Somerset Council, thanks to support from members of the community.
The trees, in Well Park, are in an area which was sold as investment land by Alliance Homes last year.
This led to concern among villagers that the trees would be chopped down to make way for possible housing in the future, but the council made the area subject to a tree preservation order last week. This means any future development will have to be respectful of the trees.
