Trees growing to the side of 83 Deerleap

Reported in the Tree is considered to be causing damage category anonymously at 21:08, Mon 1 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2138248.

I wrote to you on the 9/2/20 you have since changed your website. I have still not had a reply. Over the years 83 Deerleap has suffered serious subsidence. So much so the concrete lounge floor cracked in half and dropped 5 inches. The last occurrence all of the bushes and trees had to be removed. Both in front of the property and the council had to remove the hedge and trees to the side of the property. This had to be done to half way down the garden. (Now Strawberry Ave) Unfortunately you have now let the hedge re-grow and trees which are too near the property. Please can you rectify this so the house does not suffer more issues. Also the new trees that were planted are also too close. I have all of the original paperwork.
