During the election campaign, I sent the following letter out to residents of Bermans Way and Leeland Way – (Letter to residents of Bermans Way and Leeland Way).
It was regarding this eyesore that had residents angry for years. My predecessors did nothing about it. It was ignored by the people who should by the duty of their role care about issues like this that residents are rightly furious about. I would hate to live with a dump like that on my road.
The Lib Dem introduction of a £25 for bulky item collection had made it easier to dump and unfortunately for residents on Bermans Way and Leeland Way, they had become victims of Lib Dem policy.
A week into my tenure as a Councillor and skips were around to deal with the dump. This is what it looks like now after the clear up.
The scrapping of the £25 bulky items charge will mean that scenes like this will become a thing of the past.
