Overgrown trees

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 13:53, Sat 3 October 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2323260.

In March of 2010 we reported overgrown trees on council property adjacent to 63 Benland. PE3 8EB. The trees were inspected in April 2010 and we were told it was "unclear" as to who the trees belonged to! Although it is quite obviously council property. Since that time nothing has been done. Tree branches are now hitting roofs, guttering, blocking natural light into homes, blocking gutters by shedding needles etc. Before these trees cause only further damage to our properties could the council please instruct their contractors to address these issues.
