Trees over hanging our property and stopping light
Reported via mobile in the Overhanging Trees category anonymously at 18:34, Tue 3 August 2021
Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2912137.
The council owned trees adjacent to my property at 5 Vetchfield, orton Brimbles are over hanging my garden and stopping the daylight from getting in. The house has already had subsidence issues. We are hoping that maintenance to these trees now will prevent further costs being incurred in the future. The trees need cutting back and lowering in height.
