Not sure who is and is not familiar with Church Rise outside Andrew Court, but the tree roots have been an issue there for years.
Now I know its nature and all, and hacking roots of mature trees is not a good thing. BUT....
The pavement is becoming more and more impassable these days, with the roots rising sharply 3-4 inches above the pavement surface.

I have asked the council to look at it, and am told that it is "awaiting prioritisation"

I an no engineer, and have no idea what the fix would be, but do think that if a paving stone raised 1cm requires attention, or a dip in the tarmac needs repair, then these should be looked at too.

Seems strange that the pavement person has been around the local streets inc Church Rise and marked a number of places for repair.

Examples below.
   
   

But at the same time, these have received NO attention.
