These trees are outside the boundary of the new estate I live on and they are in front of my house and growing over the properties along Simmons Way, my address is 13 Simmons Way. The trees have grown very tall, they are very brittle and branches are continuously falling from them in any sort of wind thereby they are a hazard to people walking on the path underneath them. I am forever picking up branches off my lawn and all the way down the drive and public pathway.
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.
