Overgrown bushes the size of trees affecting house

Reported in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 08:25, Sat 25 July 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2215799.

These bushes have been here since I moved in 30 years ago. I have been trying to maintain them even though this is your land. I am sick to death of doing this and they are getting bigger every few years. My little lawnmower and strimmer cannot keep on top this. They are too big and they are now affecting my house and ruining my fence. They need to be dug up and permanently killed. Or if you are not going to do that then I suggest you give me the land considering I have been maintaining it for all of these years. I can't even get to my back gate because of this!!!
