RESIDENTS are making a last-ditch appeal to save a tree from being felled at Townlands Hospital in Henley.
Work to remove trees and shrubs at the site of York Road began on Tuesday, just 24 hours after final approval was given for the hospital to be redeveloped.
On the same day, Vinci Construction delivered newsletters to nearby residents saying that a number of trees and shrubs “need to be removed”.
Neighbours in York Road are making a final attempt to save a large lime tree near the entrance to the site which is due to be cut down.
The tree, which is thought to be about 200 years old, will make way for an access road between York Road and Clarence Road which will eventually become a car park.
