Trees over hanging private gardens

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The trees on the highway of Stonebridge Road are hanging over the garden of 18 schoolclose. Dropping leaves branches and an awful lot of bird mess, and blocking light making the garden unsafe for anyone with mobility issues. The trees are not on their land and deemed to be OCC.

  • Thank you for your enquiry. I have visited the location and assessed the trees. The trees are on land not deemed to be part of the highway maintainable at public expense and therefore, Oxfordshire County Council do not have responsibility for the trees as local highway authority. I believe the tree may be the responsibility of the Vale of White Horse District Council and therefore you should contact them directly to pursue this enquiry further.
