Tree needs pruning

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 20:49, Tue 2 May 2023 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4510355.

At the Ravenswood Avenue entrance to the car park, close to the disabled bays and the ex ticket machine, a tree needs pruning as the branches are hanging so low that they are impeding pedestrians.

  • It’s very surprising to hear that this car park belongs to a third party and not the London Borough of Bromley. Perhaps you would like to refund all the money paid by motorists to the Council for parking and penalty charge notices for non-payment, since you are very zealous to collect all these monies. How is it ok for Bromley Council to take money from motorists under false pretences if the car park is privately owned? Then again, perhaps you might check again and find that it is your responsibility to prune the trees?
