Tree in the alley damaging property

Reported via desktop in the Park / Open space category anonymously at 22:55, Wednesday 22 September 2021

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3019147.

The tree in the alley at the back of my house is so close to the house wall it has damaged the fence and the stone walls. The walls have moved as per the picture. The tree is so close it will damage the foundation of our house with its roots and the branches are leaning over our property. We are having an extension built in the back of our house (planning permission sought) and the tree will damage the foundation of the extension too.
