Last month I covered plans to cut down a number of trees on the Thames path in Greenwich. The plans raised considerable publicity given just how popular this little area of the Thames path is.
It’s a beautiful spot with the willows an integral part of what makes it so special, framing views over the Thames.
Or at least was.
It appears someone has taken a chainsaw to at least one of the trees already before any planning decision made. As yet there is no word on exactly who did it.
Last month’s application was to remove a number of trees at this point and enable the installation of conveyor belts to serve a new working wharf. It wasn’t the only controversial aspect of plans, as a publicly accessible pier would also be closed.
