Leaves on grass verges and pavements not swept up yet

I reported in early December that there are a lot of fallen leaves on the pavements and grass verges in the made-up part of The Avenue (between Westgate Road and Southend Road). The leaf cleaners did visit during December but did not finish the job, as there are still some places on both sides of the road where there are leaves on the pavements and many more places where there are extensive leaves on the verges. Please can the contractors return and finish the job. Thank you.

  • Thanks for updating me on Wednesday 15th January. The roadsweepers arrived on Thursday 16th January and I spoke to them as they were finishing because there were still a lot of leaves around which they hadn't swept up. They explained they didn't have enough time to complete the job as they had too much other work to do (I understand this, local government has been hit really hard by spending cuts) so I'm not complaining, I'm just asking them to come out again and finish the job . They may well have to come back more than once before it's completed as they have so few contractors now.

  • Thanks for the update of 24 January. I am pleased to report that I walked along the south side of The Avenue that day and noticed that there was now a path through the fallen leaves on the pavement in the worst places (i.e near Imperial Court and between Repton Close and Mayfair Close) so there are now very few fallen leaves on the pavement full stop. I noticed the private gardeners were around in the garden between Repton Close and Mayfair Close that day, so it is possible they cleared the leaves off the pavement in that area and not you, but thanks anyway! There are still unfortunately a lot of leaves on the grass verges, so can the leaf contractors do some more clearing next time they are in the area. Thanks!
