Tree branches being used to block watercourse

Reported via desktop in the Fallen branch category anonymously at 10:25, Monday 10 May 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2716130.

I am emailing from the Environment Agency with regards to a report from a local resident of tree branches and debris from Melrose Drive Balancing Pond being used to create dams and bridges across the watercourse. Our Field Team have attended and cleared the brook however have expressed concern that this will only occur again due to the amount of tree branches nearby which can be used to re block the channel. Would it be possible for the area adjacent to the brook to be cleared of woody debris to make it more difficult to block the channel.
