EIGHT new parking spaces could be created in Hale Road, Benson.
Benson Parish Council heard that this would mean the loss of two trees and a public bench on the eastern side of the road.
Councillor David Olley urged the council to object to the plans by housing association Soha, saying: “They could quite easily reposition the parking bays as the residents want.
“I’m very pleased they are making additional car parking spaces but not where they are doing it.”
The council agreed to register no objection in principle but to oppose the site of the four bays on the eastern side.
