City councillors Alex Collis and Martin Smart recently went on a ward walkabout, focusing on Crowland Way and surrounding streets, in response to concerns raised by residents about increased fly tipping in the area. They identified several hotspots, which have now been reported to the City Council’s Streets and Open Spaces team to be cleared.
Both Martin and Alex have been working closely with the neighbourhood team on various improvements needed across the ward, including additional bins along Nicholson Way and problems caused by the communal recycling areas. The ward walkabout will become a regular, weekly fixture, covering the whole of Kings Hedges, as Alex explained;
“It’s important that the streets and courts of Kings Hedges stay clean and tidy, so that all our residents can enjoy them safely. We’ll continue to work with city council officers to make sure that where there is fly tipping, it’s cleared quickly and efficiently. If residents have concerns about particular fly tipping hot spots, please get in touch and let us know – and we’ll make sure to follow up on one of our ward walkabouts.”
