  • Bromley Council has been in contact with the responsible parties concerning the overhanging vegetation affecting the highway within the Bromley and Greenwich boroughs and is making good progress. The rest of the overhanging vegetation, specifically that on the opposite side of the road to 2A - 24 Mottingham Lane SE12 4AN is the responsibility of Greenwich Council to pursue and resolve; this report will now be referred to them accordingly. Though Bromley Council have informed those responsible for this section of land, please direct any further enquiries to Greenwich Council for overhanging vegetation at this location that falls on their side of the borough boundary line. Thank you.

  • We have investigated this report and the location is outside of the borough boundary. We have therefore referred the report to Greenwich Council.
