Got a local grotspot?

abandoned bikeCouncillors are being asked to nominate areas for special attention by the City Council’s Enforcement team, which acts on a range of environmental nuisances such as fly tipping, litter, graffiti, verge parking, abandoned vehicles, and dog-related offences. (NB This team does not deal with parking nuisance.)

I am aware of many local grotspots for litter, such as near the sixth-form college and in passageways between streets, eg Hulatt Road; and we are well aware of the littering around Addenbrooke’s, especially smoking-related rubbish.

At the South Area meeting next Monday, December 8th, we will nominate areas for action, and decide sites for new bins. The meeting is open to the public and is at the Cherry Hinton Village Centre, starting at 7pm. Here is a link to the agenda.

The meeting is open to the public, and takes place at the Cherry Hinton Village Centre starting at 7pm next Monday, 8th December. More details here: […]
