The Woodberry Down regeneration is being delivered in partnership with Hackney Council, Berkeley Homes and Notting Hill Genesis Housing Association, working with Woodberry Down Community Organisation (WDCO) and Manor House Development Trust (MHDT).
You may be aware that there are some protestors presently on Woodberry Grove who oppose the removal of a tree. I want to reassure you that the removal of this tree is essential to deliver all of the benefits mentioned above, and as part of the plans we are planting 175 new trees to replace the ones lost.
The Mayor, Phil Glanville, has recently written about why he supports the removal of the tree and you can find his blog here: https://news.hackney.gov.uk/losing-a-much-loved-tree-is-never-easy-but-heres-why-its-necessary/
Below you can view an open letter to Woodberry Down Community Organisation (WDCO) outlining, in detail, why we must proceed with the removal of the tree.
