Residents are reaching the end of their tether regarding the increasing frequency of rubbish dumping under Pevensey Road bridge. The dumping is physically hazardous, especially to the visually impaired, wheelchair and buggy users.
The Neighbourhood Ward Officer for Cann Hall has stated he will be patrolling the area more regularly due to the volume of complaints and glaring photo evidence.
The council are planning to reinstate CCTV, as requested by concerned residents and FOCUS Team member Rupert Alexander. Leaflets have been dropped through letterboxes advising people to dispose of their rubbish responsibly.
Rupert said, "Working together with the council has proved positive. We shall keep an eye on things."
