  • In order for CBC to act on claims of root damage or subsidence we require fairly comprehensive information/reports. Please see below:

    Tree related subsidence occurs when a tree or trees removes water from a shrinkable clay soil; causing the soil to contract and can result in structural damage to properties. The Highways Department does not accept, as a matter of course, that tree related subsidence is the cause of structural damage to property. Evidence is required to support any claim.
    All claims of subsidence relating to highway-maintained trees are administered by the Councils Insurance Team. Cases of subsidence are often complex and require a broad range of information to be considered adequately as such. The Council requires the following information to investigate a claim of subsidence:
    ? Description of type of damage
    ? Indication of seasonal movement
    ? Levels and distortion survey
    ? Visual evidence of damage
    ? Depth of foundations demonstrated from excavated trial holes
    ? Analysis of soil type under foundation
    ? Presence and identification of tree roots

    State changed to: No further action
