Trees blocking daylight and blocking guttering

Reported in the Tree blocking daylight category anonymously at 17:50, Tuesday 30 June 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2179881.

These trees are on the field which my back garden backs onto No 14 Wye Place and is shutting out light and sun and constantly blocking my guttering with the leaves that come from them and into my garden , I have had trees removed from my own garden to improve the light and would like these trees cut down to a height that is not taller than my house which they are now, Also we get a lot of fly tipping in the bushes where the resets are located because it is so overgrown, I am sure one day this will then encourage fires to happen and am thinking of my property and damage it may cause.
