Paving slabs being lifted by tree roots

Reported via desktop in the Pavement/footpath issue (NH) category anonymously at 10:00, Tuesday 11 June 2024

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6091751.

There is a tree located by the metal railings which separate Nelson Close from the A27. The tree is on the Nelson Close side outside no. 39. The tree roots have caused the paving slabs to lift and causing a trip hazard for the residents of the property, as well as visitors to the property. It is also starting to affect the boundary wall of the property adjacent to the pavement area. This property is owned by Adur Homes

  • Thank you for making your report.

    We've inspected the issue today, having established that the tree that is causing the issues is on the Nelson Close side of fence.

    Our boundary is the fence with the fence being a Local Authority asset. All issues therefore lie with with the relevant local authority.

    Kind regards
