Liberal Democrat controlled North Norfolk District Council is taking robust action to implement its policies on the environment
Tree planting programme has begun towards the target of 110 000 new trees over four years with the planting of 1200 trees in the Sadler’s Wood pocket park in North Walsham.
North Walsham Councillor Nigel Lloyd, environment portfolio holder at NNDC, said: "We were delighted with the response to our first large-scale planting activity since launching the campaign. "Twelve hundred trees in one event is a huge milestone to achieve within this year's tree planting season. These are in addition to a further 10,000 trees being planted this planting season at our country parks”.
"We are looking forward to working with other local community groups, schools, businesses and individuals to run more events across north Norfolk in the coming months. "Whether it is one tree planted, or another 1200, each one counts towards our ambitious goal and we welcome all support and ideas."
To support its four-year tree planting ambition, NNDC is working with the Woodland Trust as its main supplier of trees. It is encouraging individuals, as well as schools, groups and businesses, to get involved with the campaign which is part of its journey to becoming a carbon neutral council by 2030.
