Overhanging tree branches

Reported in the Trees category by David Cook at 20:51, Sun 2 September 2018

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

As previously reported and having only part been completed I am reporting this problem again - As you exit Pensclose on to Newland looking right you are unable to get a clear view of advancing traffic at speed - 30 mph - as the lower branches upon a mature tree are overhanging and need cutting back. The branches are to grass level and without advancing slowly in to Newland you are unable to get a clear view of traffic heading out of Witney - removal and clearance will prevent a future accident. In addition the pavement is restricted by these branches - please can all lower branches be removed as confirmed previously

  • I have reported this problem x3 times and was advised by the County Council that this formed part of their planned maintenance in June 2018. Perhaps they meant 2019. A visit was made and a temporary one side of the tree cut made Please would somebody else report the matter as clearly the Council are not getting my message.

  • Apologies for the delay in response. Due to the length of time since it was reported please can you confirm if it is still an issue by changing the state back to Open.

  • The problem despite repeated reports has still not been attended to - once leaf growth commenced we will once again not be able to see out from the end of Pensclose - accident waiting to happen
