Over grown trees, 11th June

Tue, 11 Jun 2024 21:54:31 +0100
54.529973 -1.555803

Over grown trees outside my house on the council pavement…… It is a disgrace I have no sunlight and the leaves and twigs and whatever the trees are growing drop all over my garden and drive and block my guttering as I live in a bungalow... not to mention all the bird poo that ends up on my windows and doors, I’m an elderly lady and during the winter whenever we have high winds the branches fly off and hit my windows I find it very scary I get worried the tree could fall and damage my home. I’ve lived with this for a few yrs and each yr it gets worse,I have complained in the past but absolutely nothing gets done about it…also it’s getting dangerous because the trees are lifting up the payment, I feel this is a trip hazard. I would really appreciate it if this can be looked at and dealt with thank you.

Road surface has collapsed. This is leading to flooding and also deep rutts in the road - as such Southbound traffic is driving round it using the hatched area down the middle of the road then as such, veering into the oncoming filter lane. This is going to cause an accident as someone pulls into the filter lane whilst someone else is avoiding the failed road surface.
