  • This has not been done still waiting to find out what they are going to do the tree is dangerous when it’s very high winds branches lean over pavement and the branches touch the cables in amongst the tree It’s in the grounds of Birdham Place and the communal path runs outside 75 and 73 Birdham Road. The cables are connected to the flats and 75 Birdham Road which you can see from communal path I don’t think the council are bothered as we are fed up with reporting it

  • No one has been and sorted this out yet. The other day when we had the high winds it was horrendous we thought it was going to fall down the council don’t do nothing about it a waste of time When something happens or damage is done to houses or flats or people they will be liable of the consequences. I wish they would just do what they need to do.

  • Still nothing done we have had really strong winds lately and this tree is dangerous now six months on from reporting to local council direct and to your website. The leaves are now falling all down the steps which is council communal walkway and they are slippery. They have now changed the lamppost on the communal steps and it is pitch black out there someone will have a serious accident and the council do nothing about it. 6 months on I am now fed up with reporting it if it blows down in the wind it could wreck a block of flats or at least three houses we will be homeless or hurt or dead. If it falls the other way it could cause an accident on the main road. When the men come to cut the communal grass and hedge around the tree they can’t do the job properly and leave half of it because of this giant tree and as far as I know they have reported it and they can’t get nothing done so what are we suppose to do?
