  • Tree is located next to 181 Tithe Farm Road. The also overhang the gardens of the adjacent properties. They are dropping lots of dead branches and debris into the pavement which is creating a issue for one of the residents whom is a wheelchair user and this is block access to her property. They are also dropping berries and leaves onto the properties and block their gutters. One of the trees is also overgrowing on to the lamppost which when the wind is blowing is making the light strobe. Would it be possible for the trees to be pruned back as they have not be done in years. Resident has previously reported these issues in 2018 under ref 332151
