  • Unforunately we don't prune trees to allow light into property. Residents are however allowed to prune back any vegetation/parts of tree which are encroaching their property as we are under no obligation to prune back overhanging trees.

    State changed to: No further action

  • Resident advised shes 77 years old and is unable to do this herself and isnt happy about paying someone to prune a tree that isnt hers. Also she wanted to advise she spends time every week clearing her garden due to the leaves that fall off.

  • We will reinspect this over the coming months but unfortunately we can't guarantee anything as we dont prune for light or overhang, regardless of leaf drop etc.
