Overgrown ivy and foliage

Reported in the Problem with tree roots category anonymously at 17:04, Friday 12 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2148265.

We live at 45 Cherry Orton Road, .Our garden runs parallel to the public right of way from Cherry Orton through to Overton/Church Drive. The sheer volume of ivy, tree roots, foliage and fauna is causing problems in our garden. We have already had to pay for a collapsed wall partly due to root ingression from this lane.It does need urgent attention. My husband is having to spend hours cutting back foliage and ivy from this neglected area.
