Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later
Tree overhanging footpath for some time and has been previously reported. Now large branch has fallen in pond and is likely to exacerbate obstruction in overgrown and neglected pond which poses a flood risk. In addition the tree from private property in Mill Vale is overhanging the public footpath and poses a health and safety risk.
Thank you for your report, this is now being investigated. Information on our services and the timeframes we aim to respond in can be found: http://www.bromley.gov.uk/ fixservices

It appears that the branches overhanging the pond have been lopped and dropped into the pond which is already completely blocked, fetid and overgrown. This poses a significant risk both in terms of an appalling appearance, smell and also raises the risk of flooding. The build up of large trees, weeds, reeds and silt in the middle of the pond is a complete eyesore and does not reflect well on the local area.

This has been looked into and has been reported to The Environment Agency who are responsible for the pond there and it’s water quality. They will be investigating this ASAP. Removing a branch is not going to solve the problem of the pond silting up. It is a water catchment area that will be looked at. There is no more we will be doing at our end at the moment.
