Thank you for your enquiry. This tree has been noted for inspection. The footpath has been reported to our roads department.

Please see our tree policy in relation to your boundary wall:

Section 6.5 Trees in Conflict with the Build Environment (Amended February 2019) states that:

'The Council will not normally consider removal of a tree where structural damage can be repaired or reasonably resolved by appropriate engineering solutions.'

‘Property owners will, at their own expense, be expected to provide evidence from an appropriately qualified professional that a particular tree is or has caused damage to their property and that all reasonable engineering alternatives have been explored before felling will be considered. Where evidence is provided which demonstrates a Council owned tree is the cause of the damage, the Council will take appropriate action on a case by case basis’
