Pavement outside 6 Highfield Crescent.

Reported via desktop in the Footway category anonymously at 14:58, Tuesday 18 June 2024

Sent to Cheshire East Council 1 minute later. Council ref: 6123115.

The crab apple tree in the pavement is putting up suckers which, if not checked, will grow - and as two of them are opposite my driveway, will obviously impede my vehicular access to my house - apart from being a potential danger and nuisance. in addition, there is substantiual growth of other shrubbery around the trunk of the tree - a hawthorn tree - which is blocking most of the pavement. I feel the remioval of the tree will be the only satisfactory solution. I did try to start this complaint by polling both pavement and trees - but your rystem is not set up for duality of problems! The existing roots are also pushuin up the level of the pavement and threatening the stability of my garden wall.
