I am often asked what sort of issue get brought to our attention by electors. Well there are all the personal ones where an individual receives a service from the council-or more often in today's world purchased by the council from a third party-and something has gone wrong. Then there are the public ones eg the state of Carr Lane Rec or the failure of the street sweeping rota and all the other issues around the maintenance of 'public space'.
This mornings post brought responses about such issues. As a result of a residents concerns new road markings are being installed at the junction of Longford Rd and Lyndhurst Rd and the street sweeping of the narrow cul-de-sacs off Shaftesbury Rd have been inspected and the necessary action taken.
