Grot spot outside Byron Close (on Barrow Road)
Last year, we asked the council to clean it up. But is has got worse again.
We were chatting with residents this week about it. It now seems to have become a bit of a dumping ground for rubbish, so we have asked for it to be cleared and for more regular inspections to be made. We will also look at getting to the root of what is causing it.
[Update: A similar issue has arisen to the problem we had with Keen's Close on Mitcham Lane, and that is that Lambeth Council are now refusing to clear the area, as they say that it isn't their responsibility. We are therefore talking to L & Q Group whose responsibility the land is, to find a solution.]
