At our last full LAT meeting, a trader with a property which backs onto Elder Place raised concerns about the street.
Key issues were:
- Dominance of graffiti, street art and tagging
- Cleanliness, litter and flytipping
- The condition of some of the land and buildings
- Perceptions of safety.
The meeting agreed to set up a focus group, involving residents, businesses, the council and the police to look at this street and see what the oportunities might be for all parties to work together to improve it. The group has met once so far and will report back at the next full LAT, and future meetings are planned.
If you would like to be a part of this initiatve, please let us know.
