Andrew from the Tradescant Road blog has a good post about the action that local residents have been taking to try to sort out the persistent rubbish problem on their road (I wrote about this earlier - here).
Councillor Pete Bowyer met with a set of residents recently and is trying to help them get the problem sorted out. One of the residents' ideas is to set up a local residents' association. Seems like a good idea - I wish them the best of luck.
