Bricks in drive lifting

Reported via mobile in the Tree roots lifting pavement category anonymously at 22:05, Mon 13 November 2023

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5207455.

As you can see, the roots are now lifting the paving in our drive. The roots have over grown massively over the summer period and besides breaking the wall, the brickworkrs are now risen.

  • Hi, I need to get my wall fixed ASAP as it is now leaning towrads the house and lifting off the pavement, with the root really pushing this up. But before i can fix the wall, the rooks outside the wall, needs to be severed / cut / dug out. Can you please give me a date as to when this will be then??? Since 1st of December, you have mentioned that the contractor has been notified, but since then, nothing has progressed. An actual update on date / time from you would be kindly appreciated.

  • Due to the recent storms, a backlog of works has occurred which will take at least 2 months longer for them to complete. You may prune the roots from your side.
