Dear Mr Dunnachie,
Thank you for your letter of 18th August in response to my e-mail of 7th August. I am sorry to put you to more trouble but there are still some issues that need to be addressed further.
It is not clear from your first paragraph whether or not you accept that Ms Sparks statement that “the litter was cleared away the next day” was misleading.
Thank you for pointing out that Speedbird Way is a private road. (I have been told it is owned by British Airways). You say that a recent inspection showed it to be clean. When did this take place? I inspected and photographed this road, on 22nd, 24th,and 31st of July and on the 6th and 20th August (i.e. today). On each occasion there were massive amounts of litter in evidence behind the crash barriers. What will the Council now do to get the owners to remove the offending litter and maintain the area in an acceptably clean state? Please refer to the attached photographs taken today. Could you copy me in on any related correspondence with the owners and with any legal orders/notices issued against them.
Coming back to the A4, you say it would appear the cleaning schedules were adjusted in March. However, Mrs Dallon who commutes every day along the road says that the road has been in a poor state for some years.
I saw today that more of the long term litter has been removed but there is still a lot left. I think a further blitz is required before it is left to the fortnightly cleaning crew to maintain it to an acceptable standard.
I note your comments on the Litter Campaign but would prefer to deal with this as a separate topic.
I look forward to hearing from you.
