Overgrown ivy damaging fence, the roots have grown through the fence. Now the fence is buckling under the weight. Communal gardenof council property. Issue was reported a year ago, an officer came down and that was it. I have been chasing the council up for months, and been promised it will be sorted within 14days, by the tenants. Which obviously is not the case and now this is causing damage to my property, which is private. Tenants don't care. Unsure what else i can do now. Romney road/ Romney parade

  • Sounds like you are trying to escalate an issue. FMS is not the place to do that; it is an alternative method for submitting initial reports.

    Normally, to escalate you should either contact your local councillors, or use the formal complaints procedure. The people who run FMS also run for contacting councillors, etc.

    Note that it was difficult for me to work out who owned what here, but I think if there had been no council ownership this would be a neighbour dispute.

    Also, FMS doesn't officially cover the housing departments of councils. It only really works to the extent that many councils ignore the categorisation in FMS and treat the reports as email to their general purpose help desk. Many councils do not manage their own council housing, although it looks like Hillingdon does.
