5 Dean Close

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.
