Massive tree

I reported this tree recently on here and many thanks as someone came out and thinned it out. However it hasn't helped at all as it still dwarfs the house. It also drops sticky stuff everywhere which is dangerous. The branches are still almost in the overhead cables and if it were to fall would go straight through my mum's roof. She can't get any sun in her house at all. It is not good for her health. A tree of that size shouldn't be so close to a house. If there is a reason a tree has to be there can it be replaced with a smaller one? To just cut that one down sslightly is pointless as it will be just as big/bigger again next year and be the same problem. My sister wondered if the reason not much was done may have been that there were so many cars parked down there that it was not possible to do much else. It may be worth putting notices up beforehand next time so no one hopefully parks there. It is number 53 Bostock. Thank you in advance.
