Plans to plant more trees in West Norfolk supported
Tree saplings were handed out to every councillor as a motion to incorporate tree planting into West Norfolk plans was approved.
Independent councillor Sandra Squire tabled a motion to plant the equivalent of one tree for every resident in the borough at a full West Norfolk Council meeting on Thursday.
She spoke of trees being important for ecosystems, flooding protection, biodiversity and well-being and highlighted a figure claiming West Norfolk only has seven per cent of woodland.
