Overhanging trees

Reported via desktop in the Road, Pavement and PROW Issues category anonymously at 12:44, Sun 10 October 2021

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The yew trees from the church are again hanging low over the pavement at head height near the junction with High Elms Road. This was reported before in March 2020, but the trees have not been trimmed sufficiently. Would you please arrange for this to be cut back.

  • Are you sure this is a third party responsibility? When I reported this issue last year (report 2070454) it was Bromley council contractors who (eventually) did the work. I was advised that the maintenance of the trees in the churchyard is actually the council's responsibility.
