Problem cherry tree overhanging a public footpath

I don’t know whether you can help. There is a cherry tree growing in the rear garden of Kingsbury Cottage, Kings Road, Bloxham, OX15 4QE which overhangs an adjacent public footpath running along the southern boundary of 6 Little Green. During the summer the tree drops copious amounts of cherries which make the foot path very slippery and which attracts wasps. The local residents would like the tree trimmed back away from the footpath. As the fruit of the tree pose a risk to users of the public footpath is this something you can follow up?
