The other day a local resident. Tony S, contacted us to ask for help as his neighbours were leaving black bins bags out that were almost immediately torn apart by local foxes. He’d tried asking the neighbours to put their refuse in the bin, but with no success. Sound familiar?
In all honesty I didn’t think we could get much action, but forwarded his request to the local councillors Sunday evening. Patricia Hay-Justice replied a short while after at 22:07 hrs (I was impressed – they work Sundays!) with the following,
“This issue is typical of a landlord overlooking the basic requirements of their tenants which then affect the quality of life of those in the near vicinity.
If Tony is able to provide an address then I can arrange for council officers to provide appropriate bins available and pay a visit with a view to ensuring the tenants are aware of their responsibility regards domestic refuse.”
So things can be done to support us keeping the area clean!
