Rear of 13 Selby Close - facing Horton Park - overgrown trees & shrubs damaging roof of Summerhouse

Reported via desktop in the Trees damaging private property category anonymously at 12:13, Tue 10 October 2023

Sent to Northumberland County Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5081528.

Rear of the property hasn't been cut in over 12 years. All bushes, shrubs and trees have now grown to an extent that it is damaging Summer House roof, has lifted felt off the roof, and has caused rotting to roof and walls due to water ingress. Would like this all cutting back/down, to a manageable height of around 8-10 foot high if possible.

Likewise, I will be doing the same inside the garden - as it had been left for privacy to obscure the climbing frame that has been built on top of the hill of Horton park and is same level as my bedroom window !
