Safety stake

Reported via desktop in the Public Trees category anonymously at 21:12, Tuesday 17 May 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

This follows up on previous lengthy exchanges relating to a replacement tree - now promised (again) for planting in autumn 2022. The tree pit is empty - as it has been for the last four years after a lorry destroyed the previous tree. About two months ago you promised that a safety stake would be inserted and on 28th April you said that the contractor had been instructed to insert the stake as a matter of urgency. There is STILL no stake. What is happening please - this seems to be a never ending debacle.
