My neighbour lives at 56 Georgian Way He is a massive hoarder and Since we moved in 5 years ago his hoarding has got continually worse. His front garden is full of junk, washing machines, bicycles, rubbish bags including 2 cars on his drive ( these replaced the last 2 that were on his drive that rusted and collapsed and ended up being towed away) these go with the 6 other cars he has, 4 of which are parked in the street, on the pavements and on the roundabout making parking and getting in and out of the street very difficult for the rest of us. All of these cars are filled to the brim ( except the front 2 seats) they are all old and decrepit vehicles some of which are falling apart. He doesn’t work but continually works on the vehicles in the nights, more often than not waiting until it gets dark before doing so. It makes the street look very untidy. I am hoping something can be done if it is regarded as anti social behaviour. I don’t know exactly what rubbish is in his garden but I have seen rats coming from there previously. He continually puts his rubbish out several days in advance and his house and the numerous vehicles he has really bring the amenity of the area down. He also feeds the seagulls which has now left us with a major gull issue on rubbish day. I know there is a section in the Town and Country Planning act that gives councils the power to deal with properties such as these and would like to discuss this further with someone. I can provide more photos if required. Thank you
