Tree growing on wall

Reported in the Parks/landscapes category anonymously at 11:45, Mon 28 September 2020

Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

I'm reporting this again, as this issue has not been properly attended to, despite numerous reports and evidence that the council have attended.

There is a tree growing on the wall, this needs to be COMPLETELY REMOVED, not just a few branches removed (as pictures show, attached).

The wall is already bowing, and if not sorted out properly, it WILL EVENTUALLY COLLAPSE.

The bit of wall I'm talking about runs alongside the alley between Lilstonck Avenue and Station Road, and is approximately 5-10 metres from the pavement on Station Road.

Other vegetation is growing on the wall, and this ALSO NEEDS TO BE REMOVED

  • Despite the alleyway being closed since the end of November (6weeks ago), absolutely no work has been done and the wall is continuing to slowly collapse

  • STILL not fixed. Tree, as trees do, is inevitably growing taller and its roots growing longer. This job seems to have been forgotten about

  • Part of the wall has now collapsed and it looks like more will do so very soon. It does seem that this job is being ignored by Bristol City Council.
