Huge overhanging trees causing roof damage to 66 High Street property

Reported via desktop in the Parks and Greenspace category anonymously at 11:40, Wednesday 8 September 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Trees and shrubbery is so over grown from the Recreational park that they have breached the security fencing and are falling onto the rear roof/gutters of the 2 story house and the roof of our decking. Not only has this caused damage and is this dangerous but it also deprives us of using our outdoors space.

  • Roof damage is worse than expected due to squirrels. Internal refurbishment is now complete with new tenants due to move in on 8th October. Please advise when tree work is scheduled.

  • We visited the house yesterday 7/10/21 and could see that the lower branches have been removed by your contractor but not the high branches that continue to cause damage to our house roof. The decking roof was so damaged by your trees we've had to remove this entirely.
