Tree roots damaging path and house

Reported via desktop in the Problem with tree roots category anonymously at 14:47, Sunday 30 January 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3276982.

At the front of 51 Wildlake is a very large tree on the common ground. This has clearly already caused damage to the adjacent paving slabs on the path. There is a risk of damage to the grounds, and potentially the foundations, of the property.

  • Aragon manage the City Council's tree stock in line with the formally adopted Trees and Woodlands Strategy.

    In line with the above, all trees are inspected every 3 years and at that point if any H&S or general maintenance issues are picked up, works are instructed.

    With regard to to the path, Highways carry out annual footpath checks and at that point if works are required that implicate the tree, they would contact the Aragon to assess the situation.

    When our Tree Officer surveyed the tree, he could not identify any damage to your property. On this basis, we must advise that no tree works will be undertaken in connection with your enquiry.

    However, the inspection was carried out from publicly accessible land, so if you have evidence of damage which implicates Council-owned trees that would not have been visible to the Tree Officer

    State changed to: No further action
