Save the 7 Dials Elm Tree
  • Petitioned Brighton & Hove City Council

This petition was delivered to:

Brighton & Hove City Council

Save the 7 Dials Elm Tree

    1. Petition by

      millie Ferguson

      Hove, United Kingdom

There is an ancient tree at 7 Dials at the corner of Vernon Terrace.
There is a plan to cut the tree. Why? The planners say that they want to replace the traffic lights in Vernon Terrace by a zebra crossing. If that happens then according to them, the elm tree which has been there for more than 100 years, may obstruct visibility when people are waiting at the kerb for traffic to stop.
The planners have decided to chop down the tree to open visibility.
This action was not part of the consultation process for 7 Dials and therefore was not considered by residents who in any case find both zebra crossings and the removal of the tree unacceptable. It is better for the survival of this tree (and many users of the crossing at Vernon Terrace) to keep the traffic lights in Vernon terrace and scrap the zebra crossing.

      If we're destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there's got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that.

      I'm an ex Brighton resident. Is there no respect left for nature in this town?
