Freedom of Information Request

Tree - NW4 1A_

Received: 23 May 2022

The roots of the tree located on the pavement are encroaching onto our property. Barnet Council is responsible for the monitoring and maintenance of this tree.

This has already caused some damage to the driveway and represents a tripping hazard. Unless immediate mitigation measures are taken, there is a risk that the roots will encroach further, requiring remedial works to the front driveway and potentially putting the structural integrity of the property at risk.

Please treat this email as formal notice of my intention to claim for any loss and or damage that arises from the encroachment of these roots onto my property.

In the meantime, please:

1) Confirm what steps you will be taking I'm respect of this tree; and

2) Provide all maintenance records and any material correspondence exchanged in respect of this tree covering the last 10 years.

The second of these requests should be treated as a formal FOI request under the Act.
