Overhanging trees over public footpath

Reported via mobile in the Private property category anonymously at 19:56, Tuesday 14 June 2022

Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later. Report ref: 3596979.

The trees are not maintained at the back of which are on Bexleyheath Golf Course property. They are not trimmed back and hang way over a public footpath where children are going to school and walk this each day. Whilst I love the trees and want them to remain as want to see the few trees we do have in the area flourish. They also need to be maintained. This is blocking light, looks untidy when hanging over to the actual road and the way they overhang will become a hazzard in higher winds - that’s how far they come over. Please can someone attend to them or notify the golf course that these need to be attended to. Or is it down to council to maintain any overhang if hanging over a public footpath?Thank you.

  • The trees are overhanging massively onto Upton Road. They need to be trimmed back.

  • Nothing has been done regarding this issue. Am sure that it will be left until a serious injury occurs. They are massively overgrown and not attended to at all . A hazard in high winds. Surely best to sort now before Autumn?
