The problem was the gates being left open and the alleyway seeing fly tipping and anti-social behaviour.
A few very community minded residents had cleared litter previously – which clearly should not have been needed in the first place.
As the land owner passed away. The Council agreed to clear all the rubbish and ensure the gates were locked.
All businesses and residents have been written to on the need to keep the access secure.
Hopefully the issue is now resolved and will be cleaner and safer for all.
