Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2197924.

Previous report below, submitted 17th June with incorrect address (2160317) - address is 48 Waterside Way (NOT Road), BA3 3YQ

Resident called from # 48 Waterside Rd, advising that there are 3 large trees (possible 2 Sycamore and 1 Cherry) very close to their house.

All trees are planted on open green space adjacent to house. Council Connect checked to see if it is council highways and it seems so.

One of the Sycamore trees, closest to their house has grown very prominent roots which have extended into the garden of #48. The wall adjoining the garden and the green space now has a crack in it.

Some of the paving in their driveway has also now got cracks which they suspect come from the extensive root network from the tree.

Resident requests the tree/s be inspected and advised what can be done about cutting back tree and/or taking down.

Please call resident for further details;
