The supermarket chain Tesco has applied for planning permission to rebuild their store in Slough, Berkshire. Their current proposal would result in the cutting down of a Cedar Tree.

This tree is around 150 years old and is not a common variety. This is a species called Cedrus libani (Cedar of Lebanon) and there are probably fewer than 500 decent specimens of this species in the whole of the UK. This tree is also protected by a Tree Preservation Order which can only be overruled by the planning committee of Slough Borough Council.

We believe that Slough Borough Council should deny this present planning permission and request that Tesco should re-submit proposals and plans that conserve and preserve this tree.

The signatories on this elecronic petition wish to raise strong objections to any re-development that will threaten the existence and well being of the Cedar Tree that stands adjacent to the Tesco Superstore in Slough.
