17 Tilgarsley Road, is a privately owned property with overgrown trees in the front garden. Could OCC Highways inspect the trees and decide if their condition warranted intervention. A branch has been removed from the tree near the gate, did OCC highways prompt such work ?
Thank you for your enquiry. This issue has been passed onto the relevant team for investigation.

Thank you for your enquiry. The tree described in the enquiry is on 3rd party land and appears to have few defects present and is otherwise in a reasonable condition. OCC is responsible for maintaining tree(s) on land deemed to be within the highway maintainable at public expense (HMPE). OCC may observe trees on 3rd party land adjacent to the highway which are an imminent danger to the highway, e.g. large dead trees, trees with extensive obvious decay or damage etc. At the time of my assessment, the tree does not present an imminent danger to the HMPE and if you would like to progress the issue you must contact the 3rd party landowner.
