1 - disrespectful and causing an issue if left to grow further. there is a horse chestnut that is already causing an issue of safe passing space on the pavement on London road.
2 - very large tree needs pruning. it is coming the street light which is the only one on the road and unsafe at night down and already dark cul-de-sac road. It is almost touching number 8 property where an elderly lady lives. she is unable to have any natural light into her home and it is a worry for her getting in and out of her home. it is unfair for residents to pay for the tree to be managed as it is not on private land. We know this tree has been brought to your attention many time and year previously and nothing has been done about it and now it is huge and causing safety issues.
3. a tree fell last year and only half of it was removed - it fell on a car (luckily no one was injured) however there is still a significant amount of tree left to remove.
Thank you for contacting Cheshire East Highways. We have logged your enquiry and passed it to a member of our team.
Our teams are working hard to manage and respond to reports from members of the public.
We are currently experiencing an increase in demand of reported issues along with a temporary reduction in available staff due to Covid-related sickness and self-isolation.
During this time and until the situation improves, we will be prioritising those issues that present most risk to the travelling public. While we normally aim to provide you with a response within 20 working days, response times for all other reported issues may take longer than usual.
Thank you for your patience.

We deal with defects based on the level of immediate risk. We have assessed the issue and it does not present an immediate risk to highway users at this time. As the problem you have reported is not causing an immediate safety issue we will now look at the best long- term approach for this location. We keep all roads and highway assets safe through our routine inspections. If anything is identified as a risk during a future inspection, we will take action to deal with it as appropriate.
State changed to: No further action
