  • Why is it still impeding the pathway more than 30 days later? Please can it be sorted as I can’t use the path

  • The 30 days have passed on this matter and the tree remains as such. It is potentially a hazard and also a nuisance as you can’t walk upright under the tree

  • Please can you take action on the tree that is impeding motorised scooters, parents with buggies using the path?

  • I keep getting random empty Alerts to my email in regards to the tree that remains impeding a footpath but no written confirmation of action to resolve matter since letter was sent. What does investigating mean please ?

  • Thank you for your enquiry. A letter has been sent to the relevant homeowner requesting that the overhanging vegetation is cut back. A revisit will be carried out 30 days after receipt of letter. It would appear that the property has recently changed hands and we are trying to obtain new details from the Land Registry.
