Working for the community

We've been working hard to make sure projects to improve Queen's Park have been implemented over the past few years.

Work to introduce 20mph speed limits and a new pedestrian crossing on Ford End Road is about to start.

Road and pavement resurfacing continues: resurfacing work has now completed in Marlborough Road, Lawrence Street, Raleigh Street, Cromwell Road, and Preston Road. Footway work has now begun in Beverly Crescent and is scheduled to be gin in Honey Hill Road in March.

There has been a reduction in flytipping in Queen's Park too -- from 25 per cent of all flytipping incidents in the Borough to just 5 per cent, and we've had two successful litter picks and eight new bins installed in the Slipe near the river.

We're now working with borough council officers to resolve the issue with parking in Hurst Grove and are hopeful that a consultation will start very soon.

We hope people are feeling the benefit of these projects.

We hold weekly help and advice surgeries every Monday between noon and 2pm at the Queens Park Community Centre. Every Sunday we're out and about meeting residents; so, if there are any other problems or issues in the area you'd like us to tackle, please let us know.

Good day to you both I would like to point out there is a serious parking problem in queenspark all over Especially winifred rd after 4pm its a nightmare. Its at the stage people are parking on the pavements and blocking peoples driveways. It causes a lot of antisocial problems arguments and a sense of fear for some that live on their own or ask people to move the cars trucks or lorries blocking driveways. People even park on T junction causing problems for traffic/buses to go around safely. The police and the council dont want to get involved as its not their field. So people like myself who need to get to hospitals and drs on a regular basis have to wait while people move when they feel like it. The council cam car can never catch them so we are stuck with the problem, It is causing a lot of antisocial problems arguments and stress which is unwanted. I personally dont need it as not long had open heart surgery. Houses that dont have parking need some were to park. All areas need extra parking so they can park their cars. My street alone is a pickup drop off for drugs noone cares. Those that know and can do something about it dont want to get involved ? So as a neighbourhood/ street we are stuck with it. Been in this area nearly 2 years and has been like this since moving in. As all situations of this type get out of hand and can snowball. Which I’m sure you fully appreciate. Hoping this matter can be delt with accordingly.
