Consideration and adoption of the Trees and Woodland Strategy by Cabinet and then Full Council.


Cabinet considered the report and RESOLVED to recommend the Tree and Woodland Strategy to Full Council for approval.


Reasons for the decision:

The strategy would help deliver the city’s Environment Capital priority by providing clear strategic direction for the management of the council’s tree resource and set targets with which the progress of the strategy would be measured.


Alternative options considered:

The alternative option of not producing an updated strategy would mean that there would be no clear vision and targets associated with the management of the Council’s Trees and Woodland, making progress difficult to monitor and the effective allocation of resources challenging. Therefore the alternative option of not updating the strategy was rejected.
