The tree is growing through power cables and situating water drainage

We and our neighbours have tirelessly reported the tree in Reckitt road for three years now. The pothole outside our house floods when it rains. There are issues with roots growing through sewers and now the height and width of the tree means it’s growing through power cables. We appreciate the need for trees but this one is too big for the size of the road now and should be replaced with a smaller one - as they have done in Lambeth. It is becoming increasingly difficult to secure insurance against the tree, due to its size and proximity to our house. Please help!
