  • All of the trees on this road are due to be pruned, our contractor is allowed 6 weeks to complete the work. They use no parking signs with a scheduled date in the hope that people will not park under the tree to allow them enough space to safely carry out the pruning, however they are not always successful.

    They will continue to attempt to prune the trees until they are able to do so

  • Thank you. I noticed this morning that the signs placed on the trees have lost visibility of the intended due date of the works and the cones placed in the road just over a week ago have since mostly been removed or taken. Your contractors may wish to update the signs and place new cones to stop people parking.

  • Our contractor will continue to use "No Parking" signs to attempt to carry out the work and will replace them as required until they are able to safely carry out the works.

  • The contractors came and trimmed two of four trees. There are two large Lime trees opposite Spire Court, which remain uncut

  • Please leave the report open until resolved, thank you. As you say your contractors have 6 weeks to address these works and it is now 10 weeks and the trees outside Spire Court remain untrimmed. There are no signs or visibility of the contractors intending to return.

  • It's almost 12 weeks now and the two large Lime trees remain uncut with no sign of your contractors returning.

  • The Fix My Street reports are marked as closed automatically when certain staurus updates are made on our system. Our contractor is aware that this work is now overdue and will continue to attempt to complete the work until they are able to do so safely. Please allow sufficient time for this as they are experincing problems with parked cars and may need to apply for temporary parking restrictions to be put in place which can take some time to arrange.

  • Thank you for the update. Signs have been placed on the trees notifying work to be done on 16th April and cones are placed on the pavement but. Who led ate blocking access because my parked directly under the trees.

  • Cars were not parking under the trees since the signage went up again on 16th April but three weeks later and the cones have been moved aside and cars are now parking more regularly as I expect drivers think that signs 3 weeks out of date are unlikely be serving any real purpose.

    I suggest your contractors update the signs, replace the cones, and most importantly turn up on to cut the trees on the day signed. If they turn up and can’t cut the trees they could update the date on the signs.

  • 11th May today. This saga has been going on since 23rd January. Signs were re-erected on 16th April but I think your contractors have possibly forgotten they need to come back to complete the work

  • Our contractor is aware of this issue and will complete the work as soon as they are able to.

  • 22nd May and signs are still dated with tree cutting date 16th April. As you can see the road is clear beneath the trees and there is no obstruction to your contractors completing the work if they bothered to turn up.

  • The work was due to be done in January and it’s now September. You have a 10 week SLA with your contractor. Do you not think there is something amiss?

  • We area aware that our SLA has been exceeded on this occasion. Our SLAs are usually met, however delays do occaisionally occur and we are working to resolve the issue.

  • The second of the three day trees was pollarded this week. Just one more tree to be done. It seems the tree surgeons only like to do one tree every several months.
