Massive issue with lack of street cleaning, rancid water/blocked drains and no leaf clearing cleaning of street this year

Despite most of the residents on Avington Grove emailing complaints about the cleaning of our street, we continue to be ignored. It is disgusting and a health hazard to walk on the road and pavements not to mention the smell of the stagnant water. This issue has been going on now for almost 3 months and nothing has been done to sort it out. If Bromley would like the residents to organise the street cleaning then we should be given the budget to do so. I look forward to a response and some action taking place.

  • Hello, I’m bot sure what you mean by resolved but nothing has changed and no clean up has been done. We have a residents association for Avington Grove and every single person is pretty furious about this. If Bromley does not want to resolve this we are happy to employ a clean up company to maintain the grove but will want a reduction in our council tax as we do not receive any services from Bromley other than refuse collection. There is no maintenance/cleaning of Avington Grove. It is pretty disgusting/smelly and 3 of us have slipped as the pavements are covered in slime from the decomposing leaves. It is only a matter of time before a serious injury happens. The photos sent on my original email, the road is exactly the same, Very poor service.

  • Thank you for using FMS, This is a highly parked road and the accessible parts of the road have been cleared.
