Reported via desktop in the Pavement Defect category anonymously at 11:32, Thursday 6 October 2022 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The oak tree in front of my house has been allowed to grow so large in recent years that it has not only damaged the pavement, but also lifted my front wall and in my opinion is causing subsidance to the front of my house. Please send someone over to investigate this
