Wanton Destruction Finally Takes Place.

Hey,

.

This post is to let you know that the jobsworths have prevailed once again against the protests of just about everyone else.

.

You remember the protest in Ireton, Scarborough.

The villagers in Ireton have been protesting for years about the decision by North Yorkshire County Council to cut down their beautiful 100 year old Beech tree.

.

Although they put up a tremendous and passionate fight, and although the tree was under a preservation order, and although the Parish Council were also against the felling of the tree, and although hundreds of thousands of pounds has been spent to try and prevent the threatened destruction….nothing has helped.

Eventually on October 1st, a Highways official was jeered as he stood in front of the iconic tree and confirmed that the Beech would be cut down in spite of the long protest.

Link to report on this from the Yorkshire Post.

On October 4th 2011, at 10.30 in the morning the contractors arrived to carry  out the final coup de gras.

.

Villagers stood and cried as they watched.

Read a report in the Yorkshire Post.

North Yorkshire County Council have Prevailed….and shame on them!!
