Tree overhanging footpath

Reported in the Pavements category anonymously at 08:37, Monday 12 August 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 3 minutes later

I reported this in July and had a response from OCC saying it was not their responsibility and it had been passed on, but not to whom it was passed. As nothing has happen and people are still hitting heads on the branch it would be nice this time if the organisation responsible is identified. When I have reported similar items they have been sorted out without this delay. The offending branch/s belong to a tree in Harvey hall

Council ref: ENQ19840161

  • Hello. Our Highways Officer visited Blenheim Road in Kidlington but could not locate the fallen tree branches or offending tree. Please can you provide exact location details and I will get the Officer to revisit, thank you.

  • The offending branch is not fallen but hanging low over the path and the ends of the branch over hang the highway slightly.

    If the officer is around 5'.10" tall and walks on the path close to the wall of Harvey Hall towards the flats round the corner trust me they will find the branch/s. The tree is a leylandi or similar. The officer will need to leave their vehicle to establish the problem as it's not that obvious until you hit your head. I did tick one of the sharper small eye level branches up out of the way. I'm not in Kidlington at the moment so it's possible the owner has reaolved the problem, I don't know.
