Fratton Lib Dem Campaigner Stuart Brown and Councillor Dave Ashmore, were recently alerted by residents, who were concerned about tree-felling in Kingston Cemetery.
Stuart and Dave investigated and were reassured by the council that the trees were rotten and needed to be removed to stop any risk of injury to the public. The have been assured that replacement trees are planned and they will monitor the situation to make sure this happens.
‘Portsmouth has limited green space and we need to preserve our open spaces. The cemetery is obviously a very important place for local people and it is vital that we make sure it is well maintained’ said Stuart.
