An application has been submitted to fell to ground level four poplars in The Vallance, off The Street in Lynsted. Problems identified include loss of light to neighbouring properties and significant seed-tuft fall that causes blocked drains, slippery road surfaces and footways. Some residents are unable to open doors and windows between May and July because the seeds float in and are difficult to remove. The Parish Council has written to local residents outlining the alternative options to clear felling.
