Lower branches creating large black area on pavement and onto our drive

Reported via mobile in the Low hanging branches category anonymously at 11:55, Thu 10 November 2022

Sent to TfL less than a minute later. TfL ref: FMS3953696.

Good morning, The Council has installed excellent new lights unfortunately the very large Silver birch out side our house is creating a large very dark area both on the pavement and onto our driveway, as the lover branches are stopping the light coming through. My wife is registered partially sighted and is struggling when getting out of the car at the bottom of our driveway. I have reported this before with a photo opposite our house also had the problem but they cut that tree and not ours only this week. Please help to sort this out as we are finding this very stressful at our age 78. The previous form filled in had a reference with photos was 1902826 in the name of Mr Colin Mills 95 Crown Woods Way Eltham SE9 2NJ
