Overgrown shrubs at the rear of Garage

Reported in the Tree is considered to be causing damage category anonymously at 17:06, Wednesday 8 July 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council 1 day, 16 hours, 13 minutes later. Council ref: 2191804.

Hello, I need access to the rear of my garage for remedial work to be carried out and i require that the shrubs be cleared away. The shrubs in this area have rapidly grown and i do not have the necessary equipment to remove them. My garage is the one with a crack down the back wall and inside on the floor possibly due to the massive tree growing on the corner. Can you possibly prune it as it drops a lot of debris onto the roof of the garage which is now leaking water inside.
