A leafier lane?

A resident in Burnt House Lane points out that it’s one of the few streets in Stubbington with a wide grass verge, yet no roadside trees.

With the Council pledged to plant more trees as part of its strategy to combat the Climate Emergency, that seems a good place to start.

And we’ve commented in the past that the wide, open nature of Burnt House Lane offers subconscious encouragement to drivers to put their foot down on what is a significant commuter shortcut.

Trees would have the effect of diminishing that effect, without altering the pleasant open effect of front gardens which are free of fences and hedges.

We’ll consult other residents in Burnt House Lane to see if they would welcome some tree planting.
