Reported in the Tree blocking daylight category anonymously at 10:32, Tuesday 4 August 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2229897.

I contacted yourselves in May about 60ft high trees in Mandeville, blocking our sunlight, satalite signal, berries making my dog sick aswell as all over garden, tree roots through our garden. Works were apparently granted and supposed to start within 30 days by aragon. Still no works have been started. Please could you find out when these trees will be sorted? Thankyou

  • Thanks for your enquiry regarding a council-owned tree.

    In accordance with the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028, a qualified tree surveyor has visited the site, assessed your request and concluded that there is no need to undertake tree works.

    We don't prune or remove council-owned trees to improve natural light for a private property (including obstruction of solar panels).

    All council-owned trees are surveyed by a qualified surveyor for safety every one-to-five years, depending on how much the area surrounding them is used. We also carry out maintenance work if it's needed.

    You have a legal right to cut back any branches hanging onto your property. You can only cut them from the point where they cross over onto your property. We recommend that all cut material is disposed of as normal garden waste. It is also recommended that the services of a suitably insured and qualified tree surgeon are used to carry these works out on your behalf.

    Before you cut back any trees, you need to find out if it's protected by a Tree Preservation Order, or if it's in a conservation area. If a tree is protected, you'll need to get permission to cut it. Please go to https://www.peterborough.gov.uk/ council/ planning-and-development/ conservation-trees-and-hedges/ conservation-areas for more information.

    For further information please read the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028
