Large tree roots damaging pavement & MY drive.

A large tree has never been maintained by Brentwood Council in the five plus years I've lived here. My numerous request for the tree and it's roots to be dealt with have been ignored by the council. The roots have made the walkway & pavement uneven and hazardous. The tree & roots continue to grow and a lack of management, bordering on neglect by the council has exacerbated the problem. The growing roots are now effecting my personal property - drive. As stated previously I have notified the council about the issues and requested action yet my requests are always ignored. The tree needs to be removed or maintained & managed on a regular basis. Doing nothing is no longer an option.
