Trees in cemetery blocking afternoon sunlight

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 09:08, Sun 14 February 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2544548.

Our property backs onto Glinton cemetery. In the cemetery there are 3 large trees that, when in full leaf, block the sunlight into our and our neighbours gardens from around 15:00 in mid-summer. As well as not being able to enjoy the sunshine into the late afternoon and early evening we are starting to see issues in the garden with moss and damp where the sunlight is unable to permeate. Is it possible to lop the trees to reduce the height?

  • A Tree Surveyor has been to inspect but he found that the trees are not on Peterborough City Council land but are the responsibility of the Parish Council so you would need to speak to them
