Ash die back by Coleshill Drive Bus stop

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later
I reported this tree months ago (6th January 2023) as it is suffering from Ash Die Back and is close to the Coleshill Drive Bus stop and needs to be removed. The council said they were going to contact Pye Developers, who own this strip of land, to cut the tree down. However, the tree is still there... The photo is taken from my back garden and clearly shows that the disease has progressed in the tree from when it was first reported.

Thank you for your report. The tree described in the enquiry is on 3rd party / private land; appears to have few defects present; and is in a reasonable condition. I may undertake works if I identify trees on 3rd party land adjacent to the highway which are an imminent danger to the highway and require immediate intervention, using the powers within the Highway Act. At the time of my assessment, the tree does not present an imminent danger and if you would like to progress the issue you must contact the tree owner. I will send another letter to the landowner detailing the problem and advising that they carry out remedial works to remove any hazard to the highway.
