Sarah Wilson started this petition to Scottish Borders Council

I’m doing this petition In regards to my concerns of the over grown trees in the Priory Bank area. These trees are far too big for the small space that they are in. It has become a nuisance. I have spoken to someone from the SBcouncil who came to see me on 10th February in regards to the trees and he himself said he would speak to Someone about it. Nothing has yet been done. I have other people’s  voices of concerns from not just the people who live on the street but also from other people who drive up and down this road. I personally feel that something needs to be done. One of them is actually hanging over into the garden across from my home.  And it’s also starting to hang over my drive way. The trees all the way up from 1 priory bank to 12 priory bank are causing issues. Apparently the lady who lived in this house before My husband and I bought it was always complaining about the trees and nothing was ever done. The amount of times I have come home to find broken branches on my husbands car it is getting ridiculous. We have a young child and not just that but when the leaves start falling and it’s wet it’s dangerous for everyone.  I am looking for some form of help from everyone to see if we can get them cut back or what other options we have. The whole of that side of the road is just over grown mess. I personally believe that the height of the trees isn’t helping our street get a decent Broadband signal as well as the actual signal we receive is far lower than it should be. I look forward to having people support my petition to help get something done. Donald Moffat and John Greenwell have been in touch with the council and as per usual they’ve made excuses to say nothing wrong with the trees the road leading up to priory bank and at the end of it is also got major pot holes needing filled in too. Something needs done before the same instant ends up happening like it has to the poor wee girl from Gosforth park first school.
