Updates

  • The council will inspect this location when next carrying out routine inspections later this year to see if any works can be carried out to help. However, there is no legal obligation for a tree owner such as the council to prune or remove trees for reasons of loss of satellite or TV reception to adjacent properties. A television licence allows a property to legally receive television signals but does not guarantee reception or quality of broadcast signal.
