Tree Needs trimming

The tree next to our house has not been trimmed/pruned/pollarded for years. It is HUGE !! It stops out light in our house and makes a constant mess with leaves and sap . The bottom is compleley overgrown and sprouting all round. Now Ive been told by a reputed local drain company that the comunal storm drain on our drive has been blocked by the roots of the tree !!!! Last week I watched a council worker, strimming the verges , just look at it and walk away , leaving the area untouched yet again ! I have reported this to the council umpteen times
