Stratford on Avon District Council have produced a Tree Protocol. This document is intended to act as a single point of reference to establish a clear, consistent and structured approach to issues affecting District Council owned trees. The Protocol has been designed for the following purposes:
To establish the responsibility of the Council in relation to its tree stock;
 To ensure that resources are correctly allocated from a risk perspective and that the management of trees on any particular site is fulfilling what is considered to be reasonably practicable; and
 To provide advice and guidance in relation to requested remedial tree works.

Child Burial Fees

At the Town Council meeting on 5 June 2018, Councillors unanimously agreed to waive burial fees for all children under the age of 18 who are resident in Alcester.

The Government has indicated that it intends to set up a Children’s Funeral Fund later in the year to cover such fees but the Town Council has agreed to implement this change immediately.

The Mayor of Alcester, Cllr Andrew Foster, said “As a parent myself, I can think of nothing worse than losing a child.  With this small gesture, we hope to lessen the financial burden on bereaved parents at what must be a devastating time for them.”
