Uncut grass and overhanging tree

Reported in the Overgrown tree/hedges category anonymously at 19:21, Wed 17 June 2020

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 372538.

There is a large tree hanging over the footpath. road and several properties which is causing concern amongst the local residents. I contacted NKDC and they said it wasn't their responsibility but suggested it might be yours because it is close to the highway and footpath. Could you tell me if it is and when can it be surveyed? Also there is a strip of grass that runs parallel to the footpath that requires cutting. Again they suggested it was your responsibility. If it isn't your responsibility could you tell me who I need to contact about these issues? Many thanks

  • As regards report 372538. I have contacted Land Registry and they have no records on the ownership of the strip of land. If your planning dept issued the planning permission surely they would have a record of it's ownership. I have a site plan with my deeds and it clearly shows it as a separate shaded area.
