Overgrown tree just outside our boundary wall.

Reported via desktop in the Restricted Visibility / Overgrown / Overhanging category anonymously at 10:32, Monday 5 June 2023

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 4632234.

We are having an extension built in our back garden. The Building Control Officer came to inspect, and he suggested that the tree could become a problem, with its roots burrowing not just under our boundary wall, weakening it, but also under our neighbours garage. He suggested we contact yourselves.
