Tree blocking lamp post

Reported via desktop in the Lamp post category anonymously at 08:27, Wed 28 July 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 2896093.

There is a huge overhanging tree that blocks this lamp post and therefore covers this public footpath in darkness during the night. Tree really needs to be pruned back so the footpath can be lighted properly.

  • Still not update on this. Are the council investigating? As the days get shorter, this footpath is continuing to be very dark for pedestrians to use.

  • This tree continues to be overgrown, blocking the lamp post and leaning in to other peoples gardens. It blocks a lot of light on the footpath making it very dark at night. Have been reporting this for well over a year now.
