Tree branch fallen on mr car
Reported via desktop in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 16:29, Saturday 13 August 2022
Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later
To whom it may concern I parked my car on Windsor drive on Friday 12th August to go to the chemist. When I returned to my vehicle a branch from the tree had fallen onto my car (please see pics) and has caused damaged to my vehicle, bonnet and wings (please see pics). I am going to get a quote to get these repaired please can u let me know what the process is to get me reimbursed from the council. After this happened a local man had told me that this tree had been reported for its branches. I was very lucky that this didn't fall on me whilst I was getting in or out of my vehicle with my children.
I look forward to hearing from you Thank you

If you believe a Council-maintained tree is causing damage to your property you will need to complete a claim form. Bromley currently have a shared Insurance Service with Sutton Council and an online claim form can be completed and submitted via Sutton’s website. Please provide as much detail and information as possible about the specific tree in question including any photos of the broken or still remaining tree branch https://www.sutton.gov.uk/ info/ 200436/ customer_services/ 1146/ insurance_service/ 2
