OUR ROADS IN OSCOTT WILL TAKE SOME TIDYING UP AFTER THE RECENT STORM
The recent high winds have left a lot of litter and tree debris on many roads in Oscott and as a result your local Labour Team have been notifying the Street Cleaning department. I would expect they will have a busy week or so cleaning up across the ward. (There will be a massive area to deal with following such a nasty storm.
We cannot be in every road, although I will be out and about again tomorrow, so if you have a problem let us know and we will try and get the street cleaning department to deal with the issue as soon as possible.
Many thanks to those who have already and your understanding and patience.
Mind you it has to be said if the trees were pruned more heavily like I request Amey to do on behalf of many residents there would not be so many branches on the road. I will continue to make these request for better tree pruning.
I have also requested our MP to have a go at the Government calling for funds to help with local storm damage. They need to reduce their funding cuts to help the Birmingham City Council deal with the results of the storm.
It is a major relief the trees were not in full leaf when this storm hit.
