Enormous tree with roots growing into front gardens

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 08:17, Thu 23 March 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4348386.

This huge Hornbeam tree outside numbers 2 and 4 Fairfield Road, BR1 3QW is overhanging the gutters, blocking the gutters. More importantly its roots are growing in both front a gardens, and due to the size of the tree we are concerned that it's roots will soon be under the houses and affect the foundations. It needs some serious pollarding, to significantly reduce it's size In previous years, some small side branches have been trimmed of it, but this is not enough.
