Given that extra resources have been put into street cleaning across the city I have asked that roads in Oscott most effected by leaf fall be given extra cleaning.
Many of the streets in Oscott have large forest type trees in them than cause a lot of problems at this time of year due to the excessive amounts of leaves they generate which fall on our roads.
Sadly they often block drains leading to flooding in places. On a brighter note trees also help reduce flooding by the amount of rain water they use.
I am also calling for a comprehensive review of the Oscott street tree pruning program for next year.
