Sheffield Independent Tree Panel, please resign now to reject your sham role.

Sheffield City Council have created the Independent Tree Panel to be an expert group advising on planned street tree fellings across the city. Having consulted with residents and given careful attention to the practical issues, the panel have recommended that a significant number of these trees might be saved.

However Sheffield City Council have overruled this judgement in the great majority of cases and the felling programme has proceeded almost exactly as originally planned. It appears that the Tree Panel exists simply to allow the council to say they have consulted with experts and citizens while continuing to do as they please.

We call on the members of the Independent Tree Panel to resign to expose the sham role they have been given.
