Root infestation beneath the pavement due to trees growing in the river wall

This problem has been developing for years and is causing the vertical river wall to separate from the pavement. It is only a matter of time before the wall collapses into the river and the cost of repair will escalate enormously. I believe the Council and PLA have specific obligations to manage this issue effectively following grant aid from the HLF towards the Thames Landscape / Arcadia Project.

  • I have had no response to this report whatever, not even an automatic one. It is nearly two weeks since it was submitted so I trust this message will result in some action. If not, I will clearly need to contact local councillors and MP.
