Overgrown Trees/Bushes on Cycle/Footpath

Reported in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 12:49, Thursday 11 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2151527.

The trees and bushes along the cycle/footpath that run along the back of 31 Valence Rd are becoming very tall, overgrown and imposing. The owner of the property has always managed these for the last 35years but is no longer able to do so. They are now blocking light and views and as the owner is partially sighted, sees them as a ‘large black imposing mass’ at the bottom of the garden. Please can the bushes be cut back down to fence height.
