Reported via mobile in the Tree roots raising footpath category anonymously at 16:28, Tue 4 July 2023
Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later.
Council ref: 464060.
Tree planted in 1981 is now quite a size. It is pushing up the public pavement in 2 places, and is placed only about 12 foot from the front of our bungalow. I am concerned that the roots pushing up the pavement will cause problems to our foundations or drains. This pavement has been showing problems for at least 5 years. There is also no light shed from the street lamp opposite onto our side of the street.
Thanks for letting us know about your issue with tree roots raising the footpath. We will look into this and let you know what we find within the next 14 days. You can find out more about pavement maintenance on our website
