Investigation: Completed (Defect Found), Defect Repair: Not Started - Regarding the vegetation adjacent to Furnells Close, we are pleased to confirm that a works order has been raised to cut back this vegetation from the footway. This should be completed within six months’ time. Please be assured that you will receive an update once repairs are concluded. We usually find these defects are tended to within 13 weeks. However, there is a common law right which permits a person (or their agent i.e. tree surgeon, gardener, etc) to prune back any growth of tree, shrub etc to the line of their boundary, e.g. fence line, as long as any cuttings are disposed of in a responsible manner, i.e. not dumped on public property or private land.
