Tree Warden Report
Inspected: 8th June 2002
I have read the report attached to the application including the responses to Nigel Cowlin's questions. This is a substantial tree situated approximately 15m from the garage in question and is much nearer to 46 St. Giles Crescent.

My external inspection of the garage did not reveal any cracks.

The tree was growing long before the garage and extension at No. 21 Beacon Hill were built and the foundations should have been constructed taking note of the size of the oak tree. The tree should remain and any necessary underpinning of the garage carried out. Recommend: refuse
