Vote to have your say on trees planted in Skegness’s Tower Gardens

People living in Skegness are being asked to vote for the tree species they would most like to see planted in Tower Gardens.

In September, the district council had to remove eight trees from Tower Gardens for safety reasons. Now, the Council is looking to plant at least 10 new trees in the gardens, with the help of a group of local schoolchildren.

People can choose their preference from a list of 13 suitable species on the Council’s website.

Councillor Tony Bridges Portfolio Holder for Environment at East Lindsey District Council, said: “Tower Gardens has always been a popular park with both residents and visitors and has a special character, with the trees being an important part of this. I would encourage everyone to vote on what tree they would like to see planted in the Gardens during the consultation.”

Voting closes on January 11, 2013.
