Cotefield Drive- Pathway covered and the branches are overhanging into gardens

Reported via desktop in the Trees category anonymously at 09:59, Friday 29 July 2022

Sent to Central Bedfordshire Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 374132.

. The overgrown hedges behind the properties belong to 189, 191 and 193 Cotefield Drive. 191 has a huge oak tree with horse chestnuts falling in their hundreds every year into their back garden and continues to grow. Whilst we understand they are there to also provide privacy these bushes have not been dealt with in a long time. Thanks for your attention to this matter.

  • Thank you for making a report, however Central Bedfordshire Council are not responsible for this matter. That hegde line is owned by the houses on Cotefield Drive, I have posted letters to all the houses informing the owners of the problem and what they need to do. The horse chestnut tree (on the greenspace) is the highways responsibility, and there is a crown lift planned for this tree after bird nesting season.

    Many thanks,
    Central Bedfordshire Council Highways
