These trees are very tall and shaking lots when it’s windy, it’s too dangerous due to their position in relation to the highway and our house can destroy our houses. These trees need to be maintained ASAP. These trees are positioned on Howes Ln. Behind 45 Beckdale close and 29 Beckdale close. Ox26 2GT.

We have visited site and assessed the trees in their location. The trees present are on land not deemed to be part of the publicly maintained highway by OCC in our capacity as local highway authority. The trees present are on land maintainable by an adjacent landowner and not by the County Council. You can access the land registry at: https://www.gov.uk/ search-property-information-land-registry to find details of the adjacent landowner to pursue your enquiry. You are also within your common law rights as a landowner to cut any overhanging vegetation back to the boundary line of your property.
Many thanks for your enquiry.
