I've sent this before but nothing was done about it it's was built as a seating area it once had flowers too but alas the rivers flooded so many times and over the years has left this silt you can't even sit on the bench now as u can see why in the photo please get something done about it I see ppl letting there dogs do the toilet here and I see children playing in it thinking it's sand pit it's about time our council got to sorting our beautiful town no wonder tourists don't come as often

  • No it has not been fixed as photo attatched shows it was a lovely seating area but alas floods over the yrs have built up all this silt Dumfries council don't seem to want to recognise the fix my street app reports I and others have reported various things via this app thinking what a good idea this is but alas the Dumfries council just don't seem to care enough a few weeks ago I reported a wheelie bin stuck on the caul and it was still there 4 days later it took 4 local business men to retrieve the bin and all its contents before it spilled into the river below I just wish our councillors would get off their butts and do something for our town
