Overhanging branches and blocking sunlight

Reported in the Overhanging branches category anonymously at 09:09, Wednesday 20 May 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2122179.

The tree that i have highlighted and also the tree next to our house 26 Blackmead have branches overhanging into our garden which drop all leaves and tree bits into our garden. The trees also block the sunshine into our garden. Finally bearing in mind where the trees are located to where buildings are i believe these trees are getting quite big which could affect the structures around them.

Is it possible to have these trees cut back please it would be a great help

Thank you in advance.
