Following yet another incident involving the height restriction barrier, at the entrance to the Church Lane Car Park, the council has replaced it with width restriction bollards to prevent the car park being used by large commercial vehicles.
The FOCUS Team alerted the Tree Officer to this damaged tree in Vernon Road, near the junction with High Road Leytonstone, as it could be a hazard to an unwary pedestrian.
It should be removed swiftly.
STOP PRESS – has been made safe pending final removal of the stump.
After the successful protests against the betting shop in Church Lane, the Liberal Democrats are concerned that yet another planning application has been lodged for a branch of Paddy Power in High Road Leytonstone.
