One of the trees at The Turrets public garden on Blackburn Road was showing signs of internal decay and was removed earlier this year. Two tree operatives visited the site and found a split in the larger of the two stumps which allowed the tree to be physically moved three feet in either direction.
Complaints were received from residents who felt that the tree was removed at the request of one of the neighbouring properties but this had no bearing whatsoever on the decision to remove the tree.
The loose railings adjacent to the tree were also reported to the Property Services department for attention.

Lancashire County Council is driving the £40million scheme which will culminate in new bus stations at Blackburn and Accrington, plus see a new pedestrianised crossing at Eachill Junction by 2016 at the latest. The scheme has suffered several delays but has now been started in earnest and has been welcomed as the crossing has been requested in Rishton for many years.
