Council serves injunction over illegal tree felling

Amber Valley Borough Council has served a court injunction to stop a company illegally felling any more trees at a caravan park in Whatstandwell.

The injunction was served on Leicestershire-based Haytop Country Park Ltd on Wednesday morning. The notice informed the company that further illegal tree felling could result in prison sentences.

The Council was alerted to the tree felling on Friday. Officers visited the site and told workers that trees being felled were subject to Tree Preservation Orders and that felling must stop immediately.

Despite the warning further tree felling took place over the weekend, resulting in the Council seeking the immediate injunction.
