Tree should have been removed in 2018

Reported in the Tree is considered to be causing damage category anonymously at 19:10, Friday 26 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2174328.

Please see below email received from John Wilcockson in Apr 2018. When the work was done the tree was only cut back and not removed. I have attached a photo of the tree as it is currently. As you can see it has grown a lot in 2 years so the problem with the roots still exists. Myself and my husband has chased the removal several times. Could you please arrange for the tree to be removed as agreed and let me know when this will be done.

Thank you

Good morning Mr Aves, The tree has been identified for removal and as such, the works should be completed by the end of June. I'm afraid it cannot be prioritised as there are no immediate health and safety concerns. For your information in relation to any proposed footings, the tree is a White Willow.
