It is not the best time for an outdoor meeting but residents are expected to gather outside Furness Primary School in Furness Road NW10 at 5pm tonight to meet Brent officers and councillors to try and find a solution to the issue of 11 trees in the street which the Council has scheduled for felling.

As word has got around the community people from elsewhere in Brent have also expressed concern about the fate of trees in their local area.  Pedestrian safety and insurance claims are set against concerns that healthy mature trees that contribute to combating pollution and enrich the urban scene are being lost.
