Bins on pavements

In Park Ward one of the worst areas for people leaving their bins on the pavement and blocking it is the Pitcroft/Grange Avenue block. This both creates problems for people getting down the pavement and makes the area look a mess. We have been lobbying officers for the last few years to take action on this issue.

I was pleased to find out recently that officers have been using the approach, piloted in Katesgrove, of writing to persistent offenders. I went for a walk around the area a few weeks ago and the situation was much improved. I hope this can be sustained, but I know it will be a challenge with a high turnover of the population in the area...
