Tree overhanging my garden and of excessive height shading both garden and solar pannels.

Reported in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 09:49, Wed 9 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 2 minutes later. ref: 1798036.

I have asked before about having the overhanging branches removed and the height reduced. Having been told that the council no longer provides this service I wish to arrange and pay for the work to be carried out. I have had a specialist look at the tree and I have been adviced that it needs trimming back and reducing in height as there is some likelihood of branches falling. Have I permission to do this?
