Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3146631.
The trees at the back of my property are much too tall to be so close to propertys. When the trees are in full bloom they block out the light , When it’s very windy they look dangerous . When these trees were planted in the 80s they were supposed to be kept under control annually but successive councils have neglected them and they are now growing out of control . This is the 3rd year they have not been cut back . The path which runs along the back of my property is no longer level because of the roots . They are much too big and too close to the property .
