Last week I reported some fly tipping and littering on a small piece of fenced off grass area in Lingham Lane and asked for it to be cleaned up ASAP. The response I got from the Council absolutely astounded me saying it would be collected next time the road was due it’s 12 weekly clean and that’s not due for another 4 weeks. I have appended the Council response below.
Dear Councillor Chris Blakeley,
Thank you for your report to Wirral Council.
Date of report: 12/04/2016
Street and Town: Lingham Lane; Moreton Ward: Moreton West And Saughall Massie
Reference number: 1010328
Details: grassed area in Lingham Lane, close to its junction with Harvest Lane that is subjected to fly tipping
The street cleansing inspector has visited to inspect and reports that this area will be cleared as per the scheduled cleanse.
While it may seem a small amount of debris it is located in a densely populated area and people who live there should not have to put up with this. The Councils response is totally unacceptable and I have now escalated this matter to a Stategic Director asking that this is actioned in the next few days, not in a months time.
