My friend and colleague Lin Davies and I went for a visit last Friday. Certainly a game of two halves in that it is clear that there has been a lot of brilliant work done in the area e.g. by the Football Foundation at Beavers School & by Laing & Continental Landcapes at Chester Park (very impressed with the quality of grass cutting and lack of litter – wish I had taken pictures).
However, there were clearly a number of serious problems around the shops in Salisbury Road. These are compounded by the fact that they are on private land. I hope that there are some solutions and I will be making enquiries shortly.
