Hi, The Tree blocks sunlight to a few gardens and is generally getting far too big. It has just started overhanging the road too. It looks to have been pollarded previously and it feel it may benefit from that again please. It is located just off faringdon Road, southmoor, behind the back boundary of number 1 blenheim way. Thanks very much

  • Thank you for your enquiry. There are no statutory or common law rights to light for a private landowner as relates to the presence of trees. OCC look at each individual enquiry to determine if any statutory works are required which may alleviate the situation. Unfortunately, on this occasion no statutory works are appropriate on the tree as described in the enquiry, and will not be carrying out any works on this occasion.

    Many thanks for your enquiry.
