Damage to pathway due to tree roots

Reported in the Slabs - Uneven / Damaged / Cracked category anonymously at 20:45, Mon 21 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1813972.

The tree roots are lifting up the pathway and this is causing me difficulties when I am walking over this area as I already have a life changing injury to my leg to contend with. Plus this is a public pathway which other pedestrian use. I also want to mention that the roots are also running under my wall and into my garden and damaging my wall. I am reluctant to replace the wall while the tree remains in the planter.

  • Hello

    Can you please let me know what work is to be carried out? Unless you remove the tree that is in the planter next to the pathway the issue is only going to return again and again.
