Tree leaning causing pavement and drive damage

Reported via desktop in the Tree roots lifting pavement category anonymously at 09:52, Wednesday 12 June 2024 using FixMyStreet Pro

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6097285.

The tree outside 139 Ravensbourne is leaning into the road. This has caused large bits of tarmac and pavement to come away and lift up causing a tripping hazard. This has also caused damage to the drive of 139 and the wall. This has been getting worse over the last few years. It looks like the roots might have shrunk during very dry periods as there is uplift but also dips. Children have come off their scooters because of this and it is difficult for people with prams and disability aids to manoeuvre around it.
