Northgate scheme final comments 4th July 2016

 CAAP’s response to the latest Northgate scheme, as communicated to the developers.
Further to recent presentation to CAAP on 12 January, I attach our confirmed response, this being the collective response of the whole panel, all members being agreeable to this.  Trust that this is helpful in providing our feedback on the Northgate Scheme proposals and look forward to seeing how the scheme develops over the coming weeks/months in response to these points.
Northgate – CAAP comments Jan 2016


Chester civic Trust regrets the loss of trees at Greenbank, Eaton Road.
Did the developer have permission to remove the pleached limes etc?
The comment from the Tree team was “There is a row of lime trees located on the boundary with Eaton Road which have been pleached in the past. Can we confirm these trees are to be retained..
A number of trees will be lost on site and the council should seek mitigation for the loss of approximately 35 trees within the proposed development site. This is a point the Landscape Team will have addressed.
We should all keep an eye out for this sort of creeping damage to our environment.
If you see anything like this please tell Chester Civic Trust about it.


Chester Civic Trust is eager to support worthy local issues by encouraging local awareness and involvement.
Chester Civic Trust welcomes the opinions of others but no comments by the General Public posted on this website should be read as being endorsed by, or supported by, the Chester Civic Trust unless specifically stated.

Public Participation
The Chester Civic Trust is established for the public benefit in the City of Chester in order to:
1. stimulate public interest in and around the City of Chester.
2. promote high standards of planning and architecture.
3. secure the preservation protection development and improvement of features of historic or public interest.

Although the majority of work is carried out by volunteers in the various committees, the Trust wishes to encourage members and non-members to take an active part in the care of our environment.

Our Local Council website, which is extensive, offers information on local matters and the ability to report problems and make suggestions.

Another website that offers a very effective way of reporting problems is:
FixMyStreet, which is a mySociety website through which users can report potholes, broken street lights and similar problems with streets and roads in England, Scotland and Wales to their local council or related organisations.
