Overgrown council trees/bushes

Reported via desktop in the Overgrown trees category anonymously at 13:40, Wednesday 26 May 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2750659.

I have reported previously about the bushes that are overgrown in the car park area for 21 - 26 Lansdowne Walk. Workmen trimmed the bushes a few weeks ago, but did not solve the issue. These bushes need to be cut back about another 20 feet! I explained this to them when they were here, they said they would come back to finish the job, this has not been done. What will it take to get our car park back?

  • We are committed to cutting back the vegetation here. The issue is that the bushes are very dense and ideal habitat for birds nesting at the moment. As soon as we are able to undertake the work without disturbing nesting birds we will do so. However we can't say when this is likely to happen, but could be a few weeks yet.

    State changed to: No further action
