Overgrowing trees from Public Access way

Reported in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 14:50, Thursday 20 June 2019

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council 5 minutes later. Council ref: 352593.

The trees and hedge row (ivy and brambles) that grow as part of the boundary to a public accessway from Grantham Road through to Spire View are within 0.5metres of my property. They are not being maintained and are now above property height. I am concerned that they are now touching the property at roof height and also the roots may be causing damage to the property foundations because of the seize they have reached and proximity. They are also a hazard to my small children as they encroach on to the property regularly. The ivy growing through them has already perforated and destroyed my shed which abuts my boundary. The trees and hedge row need removing.
