New trees welcome residents to their neighbourhood.
To mark the Queen’s 2012 Diamond Jubilee residents living in a Grimsby area will have a ‘tree-mendous’ welcome to their neighbourhood as 60 new trees are being planted to form an exclusive tree-lined avenue into and out of Scartho Top.
North East Lincolnshire Council in partnership with Balfour Beatty Living Places has worked closely with a number of sponsors who have contributed to the tree planting including the Brocklesby Estate (the landowners), housing developers and Scartho ward councillors.
Tree planting began on Monday, November 5, and the work is likely to take a week to complete. The 60 trees will line the verges of Scartho Park and other open spaces nearby and a commemorate plaque will, in the future, mark the occasion.
Councillor Mick Burnett, portfolio holder for tourism and culture, said: “Many organisations have come together to make this possible and it’s one of a number of tree planting projects within the borough to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
“The trees will help to transform this road, which is the gateway to a popular housing area for families, and will be enjoyed by many generations to come.”
Cyden Homes, Redrow and Linden Homes have been involved in the project with all having housing developments in Scartho Top.
