Council protected tree hanging across my house & roof

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 11:44, Monday 17 January 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Tree which is protected by Bromley Council is stretching across my house, its branches extending 7 to 10 feet across my garden, roof, pergola and guttering, and blocking the sun from reaching a significant portion of the garden. I would like Bromley Council to arrange to have it pruned. The exact location is 11 Hyde Drive, BR5 2PJ
