Directly outside number 24 Winwick place- overhanging branches, and also in the winds some larges branches have snapped off and fallen, resident concerned that more will brake off and cause an accident. Also resident saying about the " right of light" that she has been looking into and feels in general the tree needs to be cut back. Resident also saying when reported before there was conflicting advice on how far the branches should be away from the property. A lot of dead branches also. Resident would like this trimmed up as feels its one side heavy. Resident has the "right to light" because she has lived in the property for 20 years
