There are a series of small beds around the curved side of the Leisure Centre. They are planted mainly with small yew trees but these have never thrived because they have not been planted properly or maintained. Now about three quarters of them (maybe 7 out of ten) are dead. I suspect there is confusion about responsibility - is it Glass Mill (Fusion)'s responsibility or that of Glendale who manage Cornmill Gardens on the Council's behalf? Either way the trees need replacement this planting season (before the end of November) and some t.l.c. next Spring and Summer. Please can this be addressed? If the Council's Arbo team don't think such trees will ever thrive in these beds then some suitable alternative species will need to be identified. I'd welcome an acknowledgement of this report - by email to email@example.com Thank you.
Lewisham Grounds contractor Glendale will be arranging for the dead to be removed. and these will be replaced in the Winter

I have been assured this will be dealt with during this winter's planting season.
