Trees to be checked by council

As you may be aware, a tree toppled over on the eastern side of the estate, causing considerable damage to one of the houses. Thankfully, no one was hurt, but it has some neighbours raising concerns about other trees on the estate.

As autumn is the best time to check for fungal fruiting bodies and take any remedial action if necessary, Greenwich Council Tree Officer Sam Bateson will be visiting the estate to survey all the trees some time in the next few months.

About the estate

Designed by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon and completed in 1963, Vanbrugh Park Estate is set on seven acres with a mixture of dwelling types: an eight-storey tower block with 64 flats, low-rise terraced houses, and maisonettes arranged over garages
