Street party each August.

Street issues:

  • Pavement obstruction – mostly recycling boxes and wheelie bins blocking the pavement
  • Cycle parking – The racks at the north end of the street are useful, but we need another rack at the south (Albion Hill) end as well. Also a secure, covered bikestore.
  • Street planters – it would be good to have some more growing things on the street – bee friendly planters and if possible some street trees.
