Treescape Funding Application - Tiny Forest

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Committee welcomed the potential for increased tree cover, higher levels of carbon being absorbed locally, and progress being made towards the Council’s climate change commitments.  Community engagement was also another prospective benefit of hosting ‘tiny forests’.  The impact on existing resources, particularly with the ongoing maintenance required for ‘tiny forests’, was noted.


It was resolved that the Council proceed with the application process to the Treescapes Fund, working in partnership with Earthwatch Europe and Spelthorne Borough Council, subject to being able to withdraw from the process at a future point, with a final decision on being able to proceed to be taken following receipt of a further report to Committee in September 2024.
