Risk of damage to private property - overhanging branches

Reported in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 10:21, Thu 23 July 2020

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2213046.

There is a mature tree adjacent to the footpath that connects Gainsborough Gardens with Audley Grove. During strong winds large branches frequently land in my property. I am concerned that damage will occur to one of my vehicles. This problem has become much more frequent occurrence over the past 12 months and I fear that winter storms will exacerbate the problem. Photo also attached of cracking brickwork that has now been repaired twice in the past 12 months that may been attributed to settlement arising from the tree roots drawing water from under my property.
