Large, overhanging tree at the back of 6 Windsor Close, NN12 6JB

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 15:00, Tuesday 9 August 2022

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 3738207.

The tree behind 6 Windsor Close, NN12 6JB has grown extremely big, with the branches overhanging both my property and also the car parking area and onto the road, which is causing issues for cars parked there, vans trying to get through the road and also affecting my back garden. The roots and branches are causing my fence and fence posts to break and the roots are causing issues with the patio in my garden.
