Cul de sac end of Banks Close (30-50 Banks close)

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 07:41, Tuesday 10 May 2022

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 371318.

The vegetation ( low hanging tree branches, shrubs, brambles) is encroaching on to the road. This problem was reported some months ago & council response was that is private property & that a letter would be sent to the owner, but there has been no action taken to rectify the problem. Since then the vegetation has encroached on to the road even further & is overhanging the kerb stones by 2-3 feet & causing damage to vehicles trying to pass in an ever narrowing road. It is also causing difficulty for the refuse collection vehicles who are finding it a tight fit between vehicles & the increasing encroachment of shrubbery on to the road. I would also dispute the response that this is not council responsibility as the vegetation is on the verges, not within the property boundary fence & even if this was the case, it should not be causing obstruction to a public road.

  • Thank you for letting me know this hasn't been completed. We did speak to the owner many months ago, and trusted they would solve the problem. We will do so again, and follow up this time.

    Many thanks,
