    1.1 FAIRBANK WAY PETITION - TREE CONCERNS contd Roots causing damage to infrastructure, underground services and homes. Driver visibility is obscured when leaving and entering driveways. An independent Arborist was commissioned to undertake an assessment and provide a Tree Management Plan. The report identified that nine trees contribute to the amenity and are in good health and should be retained and one tree be removed. There is some minor displacement to the paved footpath, kerb and channel, and the paved road. The displacement is not negatively impacting the drainage ability of the kerb and channel. This report presents the findings of the Tree Management plan, examines potential policy impacts and the financial implications.

    1. Receives and notes the petition and residents are advised. 2. Undertakes the following actions:

    a. removes the tree at number 3 and provides a replacement tree. b. retains the remaining healthy trees and consults resident to develop a species

    standard pruning cycle. e. continues to monitor the infrastructure.
