There are trees at the back of my Garden blocking

Reported via desktop in the Tree blocking daylight category anonymously at 11:51, Wednesday 14 October 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2340372.

We have extremely large trees on the other side of my fence, that block all the daylight coming into my house, (kitchen/front room). These trees are on the other side of my fence next to the public footpath. I have put up with the trees for the past 7 years, and complained once. But now i am worried that they are tilting over my house/conservatory and will do a lot of damage. I need these trees to be cut back or removed as soon as possible.
