I live in Guinness Court. We had notices up about the trees damaging the boundary wall. If you look at the fence by the stump next to block L you can see the damage done. It's obvious the wall could just have been rebuilt further from the tree. No doubt the council and Guinness Trust were not prepared to pay for it, despite the major work on the courtyard the trust is happy to fork out for.
The Guinness Trust now let flats out through estate agents at market rents (our housing officer told me). That's why the new courtyard is important and beautiful old trees are not.
This is a joke, they are probably using our rent money to pay the agency fee's!!
