It was certainly a very busy month of casework in Bush Hill Park with 18 different distinct areas of concern.
Flytipping and bins is the number one issue. Sadly since the bin collections were cut we have seen a huge increase in fly tipping. I continue to call for a return to weekly bin collections.
Second is road safety. Speeding concerns across a range of roads. Working with the Police we have seen a significant number of dangerous drivers stopped and 15 vehicles seized the other month.
Third is trees. In the main this is relating to the low level of tree planting on our streets and many roads seeing a net reduction in trees.
As ever as a Councillor and local resident will continue to press for action on a wide range of issues.
The park has faced a number of challenges and I have been doing my bit to help. The includes ensuring play ground equipment is repaired and supporting new play provision.
In the last week the Council undertook maintenance works on the toilets and shelter area. Unfortunately this was graffitied over the weekend – I promptly repaired and it has been cleaned already.
On better news the Council has committed to repairing the pergola beams and paving slabs. This could start as soon as next month.
If you ever see any issues please let me know.
