Lifting paving slabs due to tree roots

Reported via mobile in the Public footpath or cyclepath category anonymously at 20:56, Saturday 27 February 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2576218.

Some of the paving slabs leading up to my front door are lifting due to tree roots. For 6 weeks or more street lamp pcc7 has not been lighting up after dark, making outside pitch black. My husband is a key worker, working shifts usually ending 11pm, on one or two occasions he has tripped and lost footing walking up the path at this time. Would you kindly look into this & flatten the pathway, as well as replacement bulb to light. Thankyou.
