Letter to the Editor
Tree at Church Point Car Park
The large tree which fell on Saturday 2nd March and
damaged quite a number of vehicles had been reported to Council weeks/
months ago as dangerous and had been marked for removal. It had also
been reported again to council at the end of January that it was
getting worse and needed to be cut down. No action was
taken by council and of course it has fallen, on my car as well as a
number of others, on Saturday. This would not have occurred had council
taken it down weeks ago or cordoned off the area which was under threat
of the tree falling. If this tree had fallen on a weekday at this
time of day it might have cost lives, as well as property.
When a call to council is made on a safety issue it is council's
responsibility to quickly remove it and therefore there is a strong
case of negligence by them and owners of cars which were damaged should
be compensated by council not car owners insurers who then increase our
A letter will be sent to the General Manager outlining the facts so
that this delay on such an important safety issue does not happen again.
It would be good if owners of every vehicle affected be
included in this letter and you should email me email@example.com if you wish
to be included which will strengthen our case.
