Low brunches,blocking light,antenna signal

Reported via mobile in the Low branches category anonymously at 16:28, Sunday

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3607753.

The tree brunches were reported last year and I’ve had an email back that it will get sorted and the problem is still here. Last year brunches ruined my child trampoline and did hit my child (lucky nothing serious happened). So what am I asking is to trim it to safe level. I don’t get much daylight, and I’ve got bad signal when comes to my tv. I’ve tried to trim it myself what overflow in my garden but it’s brunches are thick for me to do it.

  • Thanks for your enquiry regarding a council-owned tree.

    In accordance with the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028, a qualified tree surveyor has visited the site, assessed your request and concluded that there is no need to undertake tree works.

    We don't prune or remove council-owned trees to improve natural light for a private property (including obstruction of solar panels).

    All council-owned trees are surveyed by a qualified surveyor for safety every one-to-five years, depending on how much the area surrounding them is used. We also carry out maintenance work if it's needed.

    You have a legal right to cut back any branches hanging onto your property. You can only cut them from the point where they cross over onto your property. We recommend that all cut material is disposed of as normal garden waste. It is also recommended that the services of a suitably insured and qualified tree surgeon are used to carry these works out on your behalf.

    There is no legal requirement to rectify a loss of television, satellite or radio signal/service in respect of trees as an interference, as it is not at present a legal nuisance as defined by UK law. The TV licence is a permit to operate a TV receiver, it does not guarantee any reception and therefore no legal right to reception. There are no court precedents in respect of trees interfering with TV reception.

    All council-owned trees are surveyed by a qualified surveyor for safety every one-to-five years, depending on how much the area surrounding them is used. We also carry out maintenance work if it's needed.

    Before you cut back any trees, you need to find out if it's protected by a Tree Preservation Order, or if it's in a conservation area. If a tree is protected, you'll need to get permission to cut it.

    For further information please read the Peterborough Tree & Woodland Strategy 2018-2028

    I trust this answers your enquiry, however, should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Aragon Direct Services.
