Outside 55 Meadway, LU6 3JT

Reported via mobile in the Trees category anonymously at 20:06, Sun 13 June 2021

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 357534.

The tree is overhanging our property and the sap from the tree is causing damage to our vehicles. My husbands van hits the branches on the way into the drive. We like the tree, we would just like it cut back from our boundary so we can use our driveway without getting anymore damage. Thank you

  • In September 2 tree surgeons were sent to sort out the problem with the trees but were unable to carry out any work as there was a nest in the tree. They said that the tree needed more doing to it that initially reported. They spoke to their supervisor who then apparently spoke to the council, who agreed to the extra work and assured us they would return within 4 weeks to carry out all of the necessary work on the tree. It is over 4 weeks now and no work has been carried out. Can you please let us know what exactly is going on. Thank you Lisa Camfield

  • Thank you for submitting your Highways report.
    Maintenance work is planned for this area and the issue will be resolved as part of these works.

    Work has been started since your update. It appears an emergency call out prevented work from being completed. We are chasing this with the contractor

    Many thanks,
