Overgrowing/hanging tree

Reported anonymously at 11:54, Wed 16 June 2021

A huge sycamore tree hangs over our boundary and causes real problems with leaves dropping and more recently, sticky sap dropping all over patio and stones laid only 2 years ago and as you will see from the photos - it is ruining them. Pieces of branch break and fall down (luckily not on top of our young children yet) and prior to our new patio being fitted, the roots of the tree had lifted & damaged the old patio. We believe the tree need to be cut back/pollarded which I don't believe it has been in the 7 years we have lived here. Our parish councillor did raise the issue of this tree under job ref 268612 as both we and our neighbours at 24 are having issues and are also worried about the safety of the tree, which also hangs over the public highway (The Lane) behind us. The previous job ref was closed on the basis there was deemed to be no safety issues but I do not feel that is a satisfactory response and would like to understand when work will be planned in to remedy this problem.
