Regular visitors to the site may remember the residents of Hoppner Road, Romney Road and Raeburn Road approaching me about issues of flytipping in the garages at the back of their estates a couple of years ago.
Along with members of the local UKIP branch, I knocked on doors and raised petitions firstly to clear up the flytipping and then to secure the area around the garages and green areas to ensure a safe and pleasant environment for the residents.
After meeting with a council officer and contractor on site, things had gone quiet for a while but an email was received today to inform me that a survey is going out to residents about proposed changes to the area including bollards and fencing to sort the problem once and for all.
I have reproduced the information below and would encourage all residents to engage to make sure that the best solution is found to finally solve the issue.
Credit must also be given to new Charville Councillor Nicola Brightman who has discussed this at length with me and has been working behind the scenes to ensure that action is taken – a welcome change from previous Labour Councillor John Oswell who sent me a dismissive email telling me to keep my nose out.
