Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council has issued an order for the 2020 Chineham ward inspection (next full ward inspection will be 2025) which will be carried out on any trees requiring removal or pruning for safety purposes. There will also be some formative pruning carried out to either improve the structure of certain trees or for clearance around footpaths. If residents see that there is work on BDBC land in Chineham over the coming months, this will be for these reasons and after the end of October there will also be woodland works which were not carried out before spring. This order of trees and hedging works will avoid issues with nesting birds. Any trees not requiring work, which are the vast majority, will not be touched.
