Overgrown ivy now damaging my fence

Reported via mobile in the Tree Requires Pruning category anonymously at 12:36, Wed 30 November 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

Overgrown shrubbery outside Nos 5, 7, 9 Magpie Hall Lane spilling onto pavement and ivy growing other side of my fence is now so heavy it's breaking my fence panelling. I reported it back in September and still nothing has been done even when shrubbery was being cleared outside 23, 25, 27, 29 Magpie Hall Lane. Why did the work stop?

  • The trunk of the ivy is quite thick so you will need more than trimmers to tackle it. Thank you in anticipation of a favourable outcome.
