  • Overgrown trees are above the 2 metre limit on boundary trees. The trees are obstructing the streetlight and making walking the footpath from Overton Drive dangerous for pensioners walking along here as they can't see where the tarmac has lifted. This was originally reported on 3-7-2015 & it has got worse because nothing has been done. The residents are council tenants and this needs addressing before somebody becomes injured or gets attacked because of not being able to see any of the gangs of men who congregate in this area.

  • Problem is getting worse as the tarmac on the footpath has cracked as the roots of the conifers are pushing the footpath up. The conifer trees are higher than the house which far excedes the 2 metre law for boundary trees. The trees are interfering with the light emited from the streetlight and it makes it dangerous walking on the footpath as you are unable to see ground you are walking on. This was reported on 3rd July 2015 and still no action has been taken.
