Tree roots causing pavement and road to lift

Reported via mobile in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 18:17, Tuesday 8 June 2021

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

The very large tree located on the grass verge has caused the pavement and road to crack and lift. The area is unsafe for anyone walking on the pavement. The tree has grown so big that you have to duck down to walk underneath it. This problem has been reported several times before but unfortunately nothing has been done. It is a busy pavement with the elderly and young school children using it daily. Can someone please investigate before someone gets hurt.

Thank you
