Overgrown hedges on council land damaging property

Reported via mobile in the Leaf removal category anonymously at 18:30, Tuesday 4 October 2022

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 3868294.

The council owned hedge land is continuously overgrown and encroaching and damaging our fence. The whole fence is leaning inwards where the shrubs and constant fly tipping is leaning on and putting pressure on our privately owned boundary fence.

We have reported flytipping in these hedges cause rodent problems and our shed has been invaded and ruined by rats again another cost to bare due to the lack of council maintenance.

We have asked for this to be rectified numerous times to no avail. When workers are in the area they say they are not authorized to cut back the hedges in that part of the area.

We have children and animals and therefore the outside boundaries integrity is of utmost importance and we feel at this stage after numerous calls with no responses we will have to replace the boundary cut back the hedges and then seek to recover the costs via litigation which we obviously would prefer not to have to do.

A simple assessment and job to remove the encroaching shrubs would rectify further problems and reduce any further damages
