Damage to driveway, H & S trip hazard

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 11:05, Tue 6 October 2020

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The massive Chestnut tree o/s our boundary has not been pruned in over 10 years and is diseased Told this by council 20 years ago) which causes it to shed its conkers and leaves early. Its roots are wrecking our driveway, trip hazard and pools of water when it rains. I wish to claim compensation for the repair of the drive and for the tree to be hard pruned, better still removed as also obstructs pavement and branches in danger of breaking and injuring pedestrians. Bus stop adjacent to tree.
