Johnny Mercer Fights for Residents’ Safety at Glenholt Park
Following three emergency instances of fallen trees in Glenholt Park, Johnny Mercer, the MP for Plymouth Moor View, has worked closely with the newly-formed Glenholt Park Residents’ Association to take preventive measures to forestall further incidents. Their intervention helped bring forward the next tree inspection by the new operators of the park – Berkeley Parks – to 13th September.
Glenholt is an idyllic residential park home estate for persons 50+ approximately four miles north of Plymouth city centre. It has been described by its residents as a “village” where “everyone looks out for one another”.
Johnny Mercer attended a vital meeting with the residents’ association and company representatives on Wednesday, 20th September 2023. Berkley have conducted a survey report and, crucially, agreed to reassess 15 trees which are causing ongoing concern for the retired community. This, Mercer hopes, “will provide a positive path forward and allow residents to now feel that their genuine concerns are being listened to and acted on throughout the tree management process”. Mercer will keep a watchful eye on the local issue and reaffirms that he will fight tirelessly on behalf of his constituents as “Plymouth’s voice in Westminster”.
