Are of the bank opposite Thatched Cottage, Kiddington Road, Middle Barton, OX77DN. We have already asked WOCC and they have reported back to us that it is not their land and for us to contact yourselves. Our concerns are that the self seeded trees opposite us, in particular the large sycamore trees, have grown to such a size, that they are blocking out all the light and warmth from the sun and therefore having a detrimental effect on the thatch of our grade 2 listed property. According to Highway records, that area is publicly maintained highway

Thank you for your enquiry. Further to discussions on site, the tree in question is not in the ownership of Oxfordshire County Council in our capacity as local highway authority. In addition to advice given, I would advise to make contact with the neighbouring land owner who is deemed to have ownership of the Sycamore tree. Thank you.
