Trees - low/overhanging branches in Chestnut Way, SM

Reported in the Trees category anonymously at 20:13, Mon 23 July 2018

Received by Aylesbury Vale District Council and Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

The lower branches of Horse Chestnut trees (with TPO's on them) in Chestnut Way are overhanging the road and adjacent garden. Service vehicles now seen hitting them when passing, resulting in possible damage to trees and their vehicles! Area regularly used by parents dropping children off for school and at school pick up time. Trees therefore in need of a haircut ASAP please? NB: last pruning, arranged by BCC, was approx 2004. Thank you.
