Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 1 minute later

The trees in the garden of No2 Fairview Road have grown profusely in recent years and are now overhanging the road to the extent that they obstruct night vehicles, obscure the streetlights and present a hazard to pedestrians. Yesterday afternoon, in moderate winds, a large branch was blown down crashing onto the pavement and road. Locals has to drag it to one side to allow vehicles to pass. No one was hurt. This problem has previously been reported but no action taken. At the same time vegetation is encroaching into the road on the left hand side as you come up the hill, narrowing what is already a narrow road.
