Theft of light by overgrown trees

Sent to Cheshire West and Chester Council 5 minutes later

The cliff at the back of Salmon Leap properties belongs to the council. When I first came here in 2001 my flat was filled with light at both the back and front of the building. Now however, the council has permitted the vegitation to grow out of the cliff face to such an extent that rooms at the rear are all dark. Moreover I believe that this overghanging vegitation will prove to be a bigger problem in due course and a stitch needs to be taken in time. Please act now.

  • Somebody from the council phoned me and asked me some questions and said they would raise the priority to a more urgent one given my answers to her questions. But, as yet, nothing has been actually done to address the problem. Typically, in this computer age, I have now been sent an automated email with a questionaire. So lots of expensive people's time has been put into creating a marvellous computer system that send emails to and fro and collects data like this but nobody actually does anything to fix the problem. We need to get away from this culture, not to embrace it.
