Overgrown trees in Kelston Fields blocking out light

Reported via desktop in the Trees and woodland category anonymously at 11:38, Thu 17 August 2023

Sent to Bath and North East Somerset Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 4901177.

I live in Windsor Court overlooking Kelston Fields Park. There are a number of very large trees outside my window (and those of other flats) which completely block out the light in summer, and also pose a risk to the buildings. I feel some of these trees (some of which are dead) could be felled or cut back to enable more light into the flats. Also, the area under the trees is very overgrown, with numerous shrubs and saplings, which are hazardous when walking through

  • Residents still haven't received a response about these overgrowing branches blocking out the light. Please could this be looked into and the branches trimmed back?

  • The trees on this site are due to be routinely inspected in early 2024. A note has been made on the site's record of your report and the inspector will take this into account when inspecting the trees and recommending works.
