Overhanging branch from Urqhart Court tree obstructing street light in Park Road

Reported via mobile in the Public Trees category anonymously at 14:00, Thu 26 November 2020

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

This is the second time I am reporting this as nothing has happened. This tree obstructs a street light in Park Road which is causing a safety issue for people walking to/from New Beckenham Station when dark. Bromley Council needs to communicate with whoever is responsible for maintenance of this block of flats and if necessary, charge them for any work done.

  • I do not understand why you are not prepared to do anything about this overhanging branch which should be the responsibility of the management company of Urquhart Court. I would suggest someone walk down this part of Park Road when it is dark to see how this large branch is hiding the light from the pavement.

  • Thank you for your updated comments. We initially wrote to the responsible party on the 01st June 2020 with regards to the overhanging vegetation at this location, a follow up visit was conducted on/after 14 days from the date of our letter and we noted that the responsible party had complied with our request and cut the vegetation back to the boundary line. You then raised a further query with us so we re-attended to validate your claims, however, we found no grounds in your accusations so no further action was taken. You've then subsequently raised a further query with us on 26th November 2020, to which we’ve conducted a further site visit on 27th November 2020 and again could not validate your claims, as of such, no further action was taken. While we understand the effectiveness of www.fixmystreet.co.uk and the vital role it plays in identifying local issues raised by members of the public that could possibly be missed by the Council, If we identify users habitually abusing this service, in a manner that is not genuine, or continuous falsified reports are made, said users access could be restricted or removed. As expressed within the report above, we have investigated this report and believe no further action is required at this time. The issue may be below our investigatory levels or may no longer be present. We would now deem this matter closed, however, we would welcome any additional ‘separate’ reports you wish to raise, regards LBB
