Trees cut leaving mess and security risk

Reported in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 13:46, Saturday 16 May 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2117742.

Week commencing 11/05 workers cut back trees at side of house leaving passage which is a security risk as potential burglars would not be seen. Have been burgled in 2017 by people coming over fence. Also workers left all chippings in the nettles beside lamp post - not professional - Fly tipping !!! Channel created by workers also creates risk for fly tipping as has happened in the past - concrete has been dumped beside fence........please sort this out asap. Thank you.

  • Resident contacted to confirm removal of 2 Elder at the rear of their property with the potential to damage fencing to be issued.

    In response resident complained that this does not solve their overhanging tree complaint or their concern regarding access to the rear of their property due to previous tree shurb removals.

    I confirmed with the resident that the works were to prevent damage to their property only and was not to remove shrubs for overhanging branches.

    Resident was not satisfied with this outcome.
