Parish councillors are worried about overgrown trees in the village which they say are dangerous.
Wisbech St Mary parish council say they “are very concerned” about a number of trees on the verge of the highway in Plash Drove, Tholomas Drove.
They say the trees have been described as dangerous by Cambridgeshire County Council tree officers at various site meetings with members of the parish and district councils.
Brian Payne, chairman of Wisbech St Mary Parish Council, said they first contacted the Cambrigeshire County Council Highways department in 2007.
He said: “Since then there has been no action and parish councillors are now requesting an immediate resolution.
You may also want to watch:
“After high winds large branches fall on to the road or the adjoining field and is a serious safety issue.
“The Parish Council has no authority to act in this matter, but have continually tried to get the appropriate authority to make the trees safe or fell them.”
