Tree is blocking light again. Now the nights are getting longer and it being the only light for the walkway it is a safety issue especially as there is dumped tree branches nearby which despite reporting has not been removed. Enforcement action may be required as tree is from a private property but light is maintained by local authority. Issue has been present for many years and gets worse and worse every year.
Thanks for letting us know about your issue with a tree blocking a street light on the highway. We will look into this and let you know what we find within the next 14 days. You can find out more about trees and hedges on our website

In this instance we don’t intend on taking immediate action. Because our current resources are extremely limited we have to focus our enforcement on matters of a significant danger or nuisance to road users. We can, however, continue to monitor the site during our routine inspections and will review the situation. Thank you for reporting this matter.
State changed to: No further action
