Member responsible for trees

The current committee member who looks after the trees is retiring, and the committee are looking for a new member to replace him. The work involves:

  • Preparing an annual schedule of tree works and planting.
  • Organising leaf sweeping in Chorltonville.
  • Submitting the conservation area application to Manchester City Council.
  • Getting quotes and supervising the work.
  • Organising any urgent works to be dealt with, such as fallen limbs or vehicle damage.
  • Reporting to the committee at the monthly meetings.

Some experience/knowledge of trees would be useful, but not essential, as training will be provided by the retiring member.

Inconsiderate Parking

We have had quite a lot of reports of inconsiderate and sometimes dangerous parking over the last few weeks, with contractors and visitors' vehicles parked on kerbs and verges or on some occasions parked opposite residents' parked cars making it difficult for vehicles to pass between.

Every verge and kerb repair necessary makes it a little harder to avoid levy increases.

We are really grateful for reports of damage and where vehicles are identified we do try recover costs. Committee Members do their best to tackle parking which might damage verges or kerbs, but our resources are limited. Please download our "please don't park here" notice which we encourage you to use if you find vehicles parked on verges or kerbs.

See our page on parking...
