There are several trees from the green chain walk which all hangover in my garden. Firstly, all the dirt falls into my garden and even at the front in my drive, my car gets dirty as soon as I have washed it. One of the trees also look ill as it is full of brown bits not sure what it is but it all falls into my garden and because of this there are all insects day and night. Secondly, I have no sun in my garden because of the trees. I get probably about 1-2 hours of a bit of sun in garden in about 4-6 square meters space which is ridiculous for a 100ft garden. This is not fair at all as why should your council trees be blocking my sunlight in my garden, they are not my trees either for you to tell me to get them cut down. I’m sure if my trees were overhanging in your green chain walk you would be telling me to get them cut down which I would understand as it’s my property but these trees are owned by the council not myself. Previously when we have enquired for an extension we get told you have to go in a certain amount of meters so that we don’t block people’s sunlight in their garden so what gives the council the right to block my sunlight in my own garden. When we first moved into the house, we requested for the trees to be cut and they came and cut them about 23 years ago ever since they haven’t been cut.
I would like to request for this issue to be sorted out as soon as possible, they haven’t been cared for by the council this is why they are too high and big. I would really like to be able to sit in my garden to catch some vitamin D, especially during this pandemic.
