Huge tree overhanging blocking sunlight

Reported via mobile in the Overhanging branches category anonymously at 21:30, Tuesday 24 August 2021

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2956817.

There is a massive tree next to us in the cemetery, its branches are overhanging quite a lot into our garden thus blocking majority or sunlight during the day. Also due to size we feel quite scared when there is strong winds because there is a power stations next to it.

But one of the biggest problems is blooming season, my allergies just go nuts. I can barely go outside after taking multiple tablets and nosal sprays.

We would like to request to trim down the tree including branches. It's just massive and takes huge space and sitting so close to our house and power station isn't the best combination
