Struggle to clear mess

As councillors for Harpur ward, we were delighted to see the dangerous and unsightly Charles King buildings finally demolished. It was a good ending to our long, frustrating campaign.

But, local residents are correct to point out the private Balsall Street East is a favourite spot for irresponsible fly-tippers and we know this has an impact on them.

The area is not council land and street cleaning teams cannot remove dumped items unless there is an environmental health risk; so, it can be a struggle to get the mess cleared. With regard to the boundary wall, we will look into the ownership of this and see what can be done to improve the site further.

Please do contact us to report problems because we always do our best. We want to help.
