Litter built up on Norwich street because no-one was responsible for dealing with it...

One of ward Councillor colleagues, Green Councillor Ruth Makoff has been pushing for measures to tackle the problems with litter and flytipping around the Marlpit area, in particular the large quantities of rubbish dumped in the banks between Dereham Road and Jamieson Place, some of which Green Councillors had helped residents litter-pick themselves, earlier this summer, as reported then on this blog. In investigating the issue Ruth discovered that the cleaning of this area had been left out of the CityCare contracts entirely! So that no-one was responsible for keeping it tidy! Councillor Makoff has been assured by council officers that weekly litter picks in the area will start this month.
