SO MANY emails, so many words: so little real action.
The Pigeon Poo bridge leading down to Preston Circus is now more than a joke; a dirty, health, safety and risk for pedestrians.
We’ve written countless complaint emails, involving others, but never found a solution that lasted more than a short while. We never solve the pedestrian nightmare for our neighbors and hundreds of Bhasvic students who literally have to walk over pigeon droppings and often onto the street.
My goodness, yes, the Council means well. They want to help, but never change the way they work or their old-fashioned processes to actually handle this situation properly.
I’ve campaigned for years for the council to take this seriously – yes we have new pigeon repellents but pigeon droppings are still everywhere. Yes, we won the weekly wash, but it’s still overgrown with weeds and hanging weeds. Because guess what, the pigeon test wasn’t done properly.
We also weeded the area.
network rail? Almost useless. They also take no responsibility for the rot. Proper advice would make them a decent job.
You see, nobody in the council is really responsible for the problem: it’s up to us to send emails to different departments.
Senior Directors never reply to emails; same age, same age. It shouldn’t be that hard to change things in our community for the better.
I think it’s good that we’ve had two site meetings over the years; but so revealing that the situation is still the same.
I now realize that it is the Council that needs to change.
We need a realignment of priorities, processes and accountability for the things we residents care about.
I’d like councilors to stop lecturing us. In fact, we are leading and modernizing our services.
