Tree and bushes growing onto properties

Reported via mobile in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 09:52, Wednesday 20 January 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2489929.

Six years ago, in high winds, the bush/tree growing from in outside of our property at 30 Penrith Grove, collapsed and took down a portion of my wall. The council paid towards the repair at the time and cut back the tree/bush. This bush has since grown back over into our property at 30 Penrith Grove, and even more at neighbours at 29 Penrith Grove. Having talked to the neighbour, we'd both like the council to cut back and remove the bush before it does any more damage to property. I've included current pictures taken today, plus one from six years ago showing damage caused then.
