Tree problems on grassed land

Reported anonymously at 15:12, Tue 5 November 2019

Dear sirs I am writing to you today on behalf of my 94 year old grandmother who unfortunately broke her hip recently, I’m writing to complain about how bad and dangerous the trees are becoming between the bungalows at Ridgemead, Whitchurch, BS14 9RB Please see attached photos of what we (myself and neighbours) are constantly cleaning up on a daily basis, this is not just effecting are green bin allowance but now are homes are becoming dark during the day due to the trees also the the drains and guttering are becoming blocked on a regular occurrence. (daily) My grandmother’s neighbours pays yearly for there green bin subscription which get collected fortnightly, they signed up to this as there front and rear gardens are quite big, the trees twigs and leaves have now taken over 3/4 of the bin allowance leaving little room for there actual garden waste. I believe these tree’s were the incorrect trees to be planted here nearly 50 years ago, The roots now go under the tarmac path and have sunk brick paving path ways to the entrances off no‘s 18 and 19 Finally, if I or my mother don’t come over on a regular occurrence to do this it leaves my stubborn 94 year old grandmother going out and doing it which I feel is discussing, this matter has been ongoing for over 10 years now and I wish for the matter to be addressed before some one seriously gets hurt Please be in contact Yours faithfully
