Just a few weeks after we reported that the York Council seemed to be getting on top of a backlog of complaints, further issues have arisen.
Nettles overgrowing footpaths, broken glass, full poop scoop bins, graffiti and litter in back lanes have all been reported but are still awaiting Council attention two weeks later. A confirmation of receipt of the complaints had been sent by the Council on 8th September when the issues were sent on to the responsible department for action.
The problems had been reported through “Fix my Street“. This web site allows progress to be publicly recorded. Some issues logged two weeks ago have been addressed – an abandoned bike on York Road has been removed and a clothes recycling bank emptied – but several remain outstanding.
Local Councillors have been asked to escalate the outstanding issues.
Morrison’s have confirmed that their maintenance manager has carried out a survey of the Acomb store and it is included in the first batch of stores this year to have car park works undertaken – this includes pot hole repairs and drainage works.
The work is currently being priced by contractors and will, we understand, “commence in the next 2 weeks”.
Residents had complained about potholes particularly those near the entrance to the car park which pose a hazard for pedestrians.
