Trees along side the court pool and snooker club

Reported in the Problem with tree roots category anonymously at 19:06, Thursday 4 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2142693.

The trees that are growing at the side of the Court pool and snooker club are on council land . They are not on your map . But deeds for the building show they do not belong to the premises . They have not been maintained and upon a tree surgeon visiting has confirmed these trees are what are causing the cracks in the building . See photos . This is concerning. Please contact us to advise us what you intend to do about this issue . Many thanks Darren Hope
