Overhanging trees within 2 meters of house
Reported in the Overhanging Trees category anonymously at 16:08, Thu 20 August 2020
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2255489.
The original tree-line was further from the house 5 years ago when we moved in, now new younger trees have grown up to a large size inside the original tree-line. In addition to this we have noticed cracks in the wall from soil movement associated with tree roots being under one side of the house, possibly combined with clay soil type. This is being investigated by insurance brokers as of September 2020.
