Firs Farm Wetlands – litter and fly tipping

Many of you have raised the ongoing issues on fly tipping across Bush Hill Park. One area that has been blighted has been the wonderful Firs Farms Wetlands.

I have been in active contact with the Council to help keep this area clean and green.

Local residents have continued to raise concerns so I made a site visit today.

First, it is welcome that the Council has stepped up efforts to stop the litter bins filling with litter/fly tipping. Especially as some have used litter bins as an over flow for waste disposal. Second, their is a need for more more litter bins on the site. I am pleased that the Council has agreed on the need to install more bins. Third, I have noted the areas where there is still fly tipping and have asked the Council to conduct a litter pick.

as ever, I will always do my best for community assets like Firs Farm Wetlands.

Your issues – Bush Hill Park Ward Casework

It has been another busy month serving the Bush Hill Park Ward community as a Councillor.

The largest issue has been street lighting, with a large amount of new PFI contract street lights not working properly initially. In terms of the next three issues, planning is mainly around the proposed Abbey Road development, Covid-19 Masks is regarding mask wearing enforcement in shops and the bins/flytipping is the ongoing issues with the reduced bin collections / Barrowell Green recycling.
