There is just no excuse to litter and fly tip our streets in Oscott.
Councillor Barbara Dring and I regulary report fly tipped rubbish or excess litter on our treets but sadly few of those dirty people who do it are deldom fined.
Sadly tree vandals have been out and about again in Oscott.
When the Council allow street trees to be removed they have to be replaced somewhere in the area however these new tree seem to attract a certain type who simply cannot resist vandalising them.
We seem to be living in a society where many just do not understand the environmental and ethsetic value of trees. They would just like to live in an inner city type concrete jungle.
Sadly this is the fate of many of our Hedge hoggs.
It is also why we must all try and do our bit to preseve them
Giving a Hedge hog a home, and room to rove beteeen gardens is important. ( leave a small gap in your fence).
Leave a little food out for them and check they are not sleeping under any bonfires you light.
Give them a fighting chance of survival before its to late.
I have been out and about looking at speeding issues in a number of Oscott roads all of which have been reported again to the Police and Transportation department. It is clear this government need to look again at the lack of funding to both the BC Council & the WM Police Force.
I would like to thank the Clean up crew who have responded quIckly to my request for the awful fly tipping in the Templeton Road to Old Oscott Hill privately owned public right of way hey have done a great job.
