Sefton Council's Tree Officer has written to local Councillors stating the following.
This follows a question regarding bat's in the trees, the work has been temporarily suspended for a bat survey to be completed.
"Dear Cllrs and Parish Councillors,
As per outcome of today there will be a bat survey undertaken tomorrow on the three Horse Chestnut trees planned for removal. I am writing as I wanted to let you all know that two members of staff from the contractor (idverde) will be climbing the trees and placing the equipment supplied by the professional independent bat expert in the trees. They will not be undertaking any cutting and we would appreciate it if people on the ground could give them space to undertake these works safely.
I did say today that no contractors would be on site tomorrow hence this email clarifying things – I reiterate no cutting of the trees will be taking place tomorrow 31st January 2018.
