Meanwhile edging of all the paths in the Foxwood Lane Court area have been completed.
We’ve reported a lot of issues with litter, full litter bins and dumping today. Hopefully we can get a grip on this problem before it becomes worse.
Many public service workers will be on duty over the festive period. Inevitably the services of the Police, Council workers and health professionals will be required by some members of society.
However we can all help to reduce the pressures on public services with a little forethought and consideration
Although the Councils contractor was seen last week on his quad bike spraying weeds in some areas, action elsewhere is still awaited.
The are particular issues on cul de sacs and snickets (neither of which are accessible on a quad bike!).
A sofa has been dumped in the Cornlands Road park play area. It is surrounded by rubbish. The issue has been reported to the Council but it is a shame that an area intended for use by younger children should be defaced in this way. Hopefully the Police will be able to increase patrols in the area.
Elsewhere at the recycling centre in the Acomb Car Park rubbish has been fly tipped. We’ve asked for the area to be cleaned up and for some of the recycling bins to be repainted.
Disappointing to see that the parking area on Bramham Road is full of detritus and weeds. Tree branches have been dumped and the boundary is obstructed by hedge growth. Doesn’t reflect well on the Councils housing department, who should inspect communal areas like this on a regular basis.
We’ve reported dumping on Askham Lane Fly tippers face fines in excess of £500.
Cyclists will be hoping that the York Council’s announcement that £500,000 will be spent upgrading major cycle routs in the City will allow for work to be undertaken on the York – Selby path. In places, the popular leisure route has become very uneven following the ravages of winter.
