Plans have been launched to plant more trees in an area of the borough.

Bury's housing services are working with Greater Manchester-based charity City of Trees to plant trees in Chesham.

They will complement the solar panels which have been installed on a number of properties on the estate, to provide tenants with "warmer, healthier and cheaper homes".

The scheme meant that some trees had to removed. But they have been replaced by five trees for every one lost.

Estimates show that the solar panels and extra trees will cut carbon emissions by nearly 500 tonnes over the next 25 years.

Cllr Clare Cummins, cabinet member for housing services, said: “This is a win-win for everyone.

"Tenants’ homes are better insulated and their fuel bills are reduced, while greenhouse gases are cut and local neighbourhoods are greener.”
