TEMPLETON ROAD TO OLD OSCOTT HILL RIGHT OF WAY IS MUCH BETTER
Since the Oscott Councillors identified the Templeton to Old Oscott Hill right of way as a priority we have managed to get our Environmental organisation Jericho to give it a good spring clean and to monitor it.
They have now cut back over hanging bushes and brambles and have strimmed overgrown patches of stingers as well as carrying out a litter pick
Sadly given legal implications for this public right of way there is not much else that can be done to improve it. However for local residents and those children and parents using it to go to and fro to Mary Vale Junior and infant school for example we are doing our best to keep it tidy. It certainly looked a lot better today when I paid a visit then it did a few weeks ago.
I have also asked the Police to patrol this right of way as often as possible to prevent anti social behaviour and so on.
