Good news for Hinderton Road

I've now spoken to a Council official about the overgrown alleyway behind Hinderton Road.

Vegetation is encroaching from the adjacant industrial estate.

I've been assured that the Council will act promptly to get the owners of the industrial estate to deal with this.

Sooner rather than later hopefully.

My resident's survey has now gone live. The survey only takes a minute or two to complete and helps me identify areas that need attention such as litter hotspots, graffiti, broken lights etc.

Activity report for August

I was delighted to see that improvements have finally been made to the vacant site between Fountain Street and Whitford Road. The damaged wall has been removed and the site made secure with new fencing. Residents I spoke to seemed pleased with the outcome and it should help to reduce anti-social behaviour in the area.

If my inbox is anything to go by then flytipping is on the increase. This is an all too predictable result of the charge introduced in April for ERIC collections. In the past month, alleyways on Town Road and Castle Street have been cleared. The alleyway behind Rodney Street is due to be cleaned on August 12 and I have reported the jungle-like state behind Hinderton Road due to overgrowth from the adjacent industrial estate.

There was a real success story this month as I managed to persuade the Council to clear rubbish that had accumulated over several years on waste ground off Kinmel Close. Around the corner on Price Street Wirral Partnership Homes has agreed to conduct it’s own survey of residents following concerns expressed to me about its repair service. I’d also like to thank Pierhead Housing who carried out swift repairs in Gertrude Street following my alert. Meanwhile, United Utilities inform me that the water leak behind Rosedale Road should be fixed within the next week.
