Bowness way carpark trees again (correct location)

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 10:10, Mon 28 December 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2449828.

The previous report did not let me specify the exact location. This has been reported a number of times. The trees are on council land (the council claims not yet tends other areas in Bowness Way). The map shows it on council land. They then claimed the trees were growing from private land after a ‘surveyor’ checked. The small green area on the map close to the bollard that encroaches into the car park is council land. The photos and inspection by myself shows that they are not. They are over growing at least two car parking spaces one on the left and another on their right. I feel PCC have left these for so long that they are now not taking responsibility for the trees due to the cost of cropping them. If this is declined again please inform me of your evidence for the land being private and a route of appeal.
