  • Hi, I received an email saying you’ll bring 2 new recycling wheel lead containers but, this is not the correct one, I refer to the container you normally have on the street like this one below attached we need. Adding 2 more next to this one that would be great.

  • No action is to be taken regarding the reported tree, please note that as outlined in our Tree Management Strategy (Tree management – London Borough of Bromley) the Council will not prune trees in relation to the following:

    • Branches overhanging properties - residents have the right to exorcise their right under Common Law to prune back branches to their property boundary.

    • Where a tree is thought be overly large.

    • Interference with satellite, TV, or other media reception.

    • Branches and/or limbs in physical contact with telephone wires - telephone wires are plastic coated and faults on the line are very rarely caused by contact with branches.

    • Excessive leaf fall: this is a seasonal problem and residents are expected to clear any leaf litter falling on their properties themselves. Leaf fall on the highway will be addressed through our street cleansing regime.

    • Fruit fall: this is a seasonal problem and residents are expected to clear any fruit falling on their properties themselves. Fruit fall on the highway will be addressed through our street cleansing regime.

    • Problems associated with pollen.

    • Excreta caused by insects or birds: honeydew (aphid excreta) and bird droppings are not sticky sap are not recognised in law as a ‘legal nuisance’

    • Obstruction of view: there are no rights associated with maintaining trees in accordance with maintaining views in British law

    • Lack of light: there is no ‘Right to light’ (or shade) in British law.

    State changed to: No further action
