Council demands pause to tree felling at Wornington Green

Friday 12 March 2021

The Council has acted on concerns raised by residents about the loss of trees as part of the development Wornington Green development by Catalyst Housing Ltd.

Following discussions, the Council has asked Catalyst Housing to temporarily pause the felling of seven trees.

Cllr Johnny Thalassites, Lead Member for Planning, Place and Environment, said:

“Our residents are passionate about protecting their local environment and we are too. I have asked Catalyst Housing Ltd to pause the felling of seven trees whilst the space is being used as a temporary park.

“I expect Catalyst to consult with residents at every stage of development and planning officers are also encouraging them to do so.”

The land where Catalyst Housing Ltd is felling is not part part of Kensington and Chelsea’s permanent park land. It is included in the original planning consent given 10 years ago for the Catalyst Housing development.
