Developer Fined £30,000

Published by on Friday, 13 February 2009No Comment

A development company who felled five 50-year-old trees in a bid to increase the value of the land on which the trees stood has been fined £30,000. Action was taken by Brighton and Hove City Council against Bridgetown Properties and its operations director Timothy Harding after 600 residents signed a petition urging the council to take action. Harding admitted felling the trees at Anstron House in Preston Road despite there being preservation orders on them since 1988.
