Outside 17-19 lighting blocked by tree.

Reported via mobile in the Light blocked by vegetation category anonymously at 00:36, Friday 26 May 2023

Sent to Bromley Council 35 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 4598060.

This is an ever on-goig problem with this tree as its never cut unless the council send letters. Its growing & blocking over half of the pathway on the street and completely blocking the street lamp. It's bad enough that I watched a mum with a buggy & 2 kids having to walk on the road to get past the tree but at night 1 light blocked by this foliage and the next light is behind another tree causing a shadow so the top half of the road is completely dark then the issue of bad pavements it's a hazard that road for pedestrians.

  • Please advise as to when you informed the ‘responsible party’ so we can ascertain when the 28 day period has expired? The initial report was made on 26th May, you posted an update on 13th June advising that you were investigating, so can we assume that the 28 days starts from 26th May or 13th June? Many thanks in advance
