First time I have attended one of these formal inspections in ages. On the whole, and as reported on this blog weeks ago, the estate is looking very good. As always in any area, a selection of some things that need to be tackled. The first, and thankfully the only example seen on the estate, of black bags being split open:
Some damp on the tiles next to numbers 3 & 11 Nursery Close:
The Notice Board in Nursery Close still has content that is very out of date. I cannot recall the reason I was previously given?
The following was at the rear and side of number 2 Nursery Close. At a minimum, the weeds need to be removed:
Some of the rear communal gardens were really looking lovely:
The following sign in Fern Grove needs to be tidied up or replaced:
The Estate Monitoring Officers and Technical Inspectors who were with us would have already taken this down and reported to the relevant people so I do not need to report any of the above.
I have never known there to be such a lack of parking in Nursery Close in all my time as a Councillor, though this is clearly a daytime issue. There was some concern expressed to me about certain corners in Nursery Close and the need for double yellow lines. I know that a scheme has already been drafted but I hope that this can be discussed at the next tenant and residents meeting for this estate. I will ask for this to be arranged.
