We have an access path to our driveway at 27 Hollingwood Rd. The right of way to our drive has over grown laurels and trees. They are both on public land and growing over from Kidsgrove athletic FC. The laurels are catching our vehicles when we access the driveway and if left will causes damage. I will have no option other than bill the council for this damage to both my partners works van and my company car if these are not cut back. There are also trees hanging over from the fiotball club that are catching the roof of his van and covering our garage roof. The football club say that again it is council responsibility to get these cut back. These trees also hang over r the rear of our garden blocking light. Please arrange for these tree works to be done ASAP. We had these cut back by yourselves last year but there seems to be no plan to do this on a regular basis along with the other gardening works that are done in the street.

  • I have had contact with the council. But despite cutting these trees back before. They now say that they do not own this bit of land and are not responsible for it. They also cannot identify an owner.
