Unkempt and overhanging trees with flytipping

Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 10:19, Monday 20 June 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

This area backs onto our property and the area houses foxes and flytipping. I am concerned with the over hanging tree branches that are dropping into our garden and out dogs are eating the sticks. Please could someone come over and view the area and rectify the flytipping and the overhanging branches. Also if the area is left to be evern more overgrown and the foliage breaks the fence, who is responsible?

  • Please could you explain as to why the report has been closed and NOT actioned. This is a H&S issue with foxes who encroach into our garden and potentially rats and the added issue of fly tipping from adjacent properties, we believe in the past and potentially ongoing!

    I requested that a member of your team visits and looks at the area in question and speaks to the home owner or contacts myself to discuss.

    The trees that are overhanging our garden are starting to break the existing wooden panels and we would like someone to contact us in order that the situation can be rectified as speedily as possible.

    Many thanks

  • The area in question is private land and is not owned or maintained by Bromley Council. Action to remove or prune trees and clear any flytipped rubbish would sit with the land owner.
