Overgrown Tree

1 Rose Close - Oakley Vale... A house as you come into our street on the junction of boughton road/ Rose Close they have conifer trees that have considerably overgrown onto the public footpath. Not only is it a hazard for people who walk on the path but it is also a hazard for car drivers coming and leaving the street, due to the conifers blocking the view of the road onto Rose Close. The people whom live in the house are also unable to use their drive way at the side of the property as they can’t see around the trees leaving the driveway and more than likely unable to get out of their car. It is also a fire hazard to the family that live in the house of the garden as the conifers are growing so close to the house
