Overgrown Ash Tree. on Greenway between Saffron Road and Kings Meadow Lane Higham Ferrers

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3002747.
On the Greenway between Saffron Road and Kings Meadow Lane behind my property (3 Kings Meadow Lane) in the verge next to a stone wall is a ash tree that has grown into 5 main trunks. It has now grown in height to block out light to our garden in the summer. I do not wish to see the tree removed but wonder if it could be pollarded to a suitable height for a tree of its type in that position
