Tree growing over the alleyway underneath the light

Reported via desktop in the Private Tree overhanging highway category anonymously at 22:07, Monday 25 September 2023

Sent to Bromley Council 16 hours, 6 minutes later. FixMyStreet ref: 5031110.

It's growing underneath the light meaning that the corner of the alleyway is pitch black making it less safe for people using it after dark (undermines the purpose of the light)

  • Tha is for checking

    This is the alley that runs between Durban and cedars road. On the corner within the westernmost section of the alley, behind the residential gardens, a private tree has grown over the fence and underneath the light. This means the corner is very dark at night and it's not possible for people to see if safe after dark.
