Issues from around Catton Grove

I was alerted to the fact that the bus shelter on the Sprowston Road, outside of the John Groom Centre, has been damaged. The area, where many people use wheelchairs, is now littered with glass and this needs sorting out quickly. I have reported it to the City Hall Officer responsible and I will keep you up to date with what happens.

Also the grit bin on Elm Grove Lane has been damaged - the lid has been broken off and there is a pile of grit on the pavements. The leaves also need sweeping up! This needs to be sorted before it turns really cold and people depend on the Council to get this sorted. I have got onto City Hall to get this fixed.

A sofa has been dumped at the junction of Sprowston Road and Black Horse opening. I have reported this and I hope the council treats it seriously because it is blocking the pavement!
A lot to do ... and I hope that the council is responsive.
