Did you know you can report problems on your street to Leeds City Council via the Fix My Street website?
Lots of south Leeds residents have already been reporting their problems to the site – which is run by MySociety and makes it easy to report, discuss and track local complaints.
Issues reported recently include dog fouling, flooding, potholes, broken swings, overgrown paths and dumping in a garden are all featured:
One Hunslet resident has got into the spirit of South Leeds Life’s Scoop It Up anti-dog fouling campaign:
“Please can someone attend to clean the dog mess from up and down the Parnaby Road pavements. This is a regular problem and should be monitored as our neighbours’ children play in this area and fell in it the other day.”
By the way, South Leeds Life has heard of a fine for one dog walker whose dog fouled in Cross Flatts Park. So keep reporting the problems/offenders!
Mr G Trotter reports on the serious flooding of the main road roundabout at the bottom of Churwell Hill, near Cottingley. He says it has been in this state for many weeks:
“Just drove past tonight on my way home from work and the road is virtually impassable. Very poor state of affairs for a responsible government department.”
The poor condition of a Hunslet road is causing concern for one person:
“The road surface at the traffic lights on the sussex avenue/punch clock pub side is in badly need of repair. There are large pot holes and dips in the road making a hazard for cars and cyclists.
“This is a H&S [health and safety] issue as a cyclist the other day nearly came off his cycle after cycling over the holes. Road needs resurfacing or filling due to high traffic levels.”
A large corner house on Barkly Road, Beeston, no longer has any fences on its boundary. Lots of glass, bricks, rubble and houshold waste in garden, which is now flowing into the street.
Bruce Davies reports a vandalised swing in a play area off Tunstall Road.
Potholes in Middleton are reported here.
Kunal Ahir reports on difficult to access public footpath between Beza Road and Balm Road due to overgrown trees and shrubs.
