Tree roots lifting tarmac

Reported in the Pavements category by Karen Youle at 17:14, Monday 31 August 2020

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The pavement on the footpath linking Milton Close with Gravel Hill is becoming uneven and a trip hazard. The roots of a neighbouring fir tree (with a TPO) are causing the tarmac to lift. This has been becoming noticeably more uneven over the past few months. In winter conditions when is is slippery I can foresee this becoming dangerous, especially as many of the residents in Milton Close are elderly, and use this footpath regularly.
