A Peterborough City Councillor claims large trees will cause an accident in Haddon Road, West Town, as they are blocking the view of road users.

Cllr Gul Nawaz, member for Ravensthorpe, said: “Those trees are very, very dangerous on the corners. Some of them are higher than the houses. I’ve had a lot of complaints.

“This has been going on since I became a councillor in 2002.

“Accidents are going to happen. The trees need to be trimmed.”

Council officers were meeting with Cllr Nawaz yesterday, and a spokeswoman for the authority said: “We will look at his concerns and will work with him on any suitable resolutions, in line with council policy.”
