Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2459481.

Tree has been overgrown for well over a year, maybe two. Over growth causes a funnel neck for pedestrians and a hazard as the branches are head/eye level, for adults and children. Also causes a nuisance when entering the boot of a vehicle, etc.

Please maintain tree.
