Changing People’s Behaviour over litter and fly-tipping
As follow-up to a query to me about the need to try and change the behaviour of people responsible for litter and fly-tipping, Councillors Stuart Collins, in charge of the refuse and street cleaning services, has explained to me:
‘(W)e’ll be doing some new anti litter banners with the new fixed penalty fine rates, also will be doing some plain clothes enforcement along the high road and in parks on sunny days. Will put signs up re littering in our parks hopefully before August so people can’t say they didn’t know.
We are also in middle of schools education visits so hopefully the next generation will listen even if their parents often don’t.
We are getting some of the ideas from KBT for the campaign , the luminous footprints to the bug belly bins is one we have tried.
Will keep in touch re the enforcement operation and let you know the results.

The Thunder Storm 26/27 May
Here are replies to my request to readers for information on flooding and surface water darining during Saturday and Sunday night’s tremendous thunder storm.
‘An impressive storm indeed! No flooding or puddles here, everything drained away well on Kilmartin Avenue.’
‘During the storm there was floods of water going down Norbury Court Road, but all seems ok today to be honest so it looks like all has drained away fine.’
‘Beech Road: water running down pavement/road from just above St Philip’s Church Hall, from the edge of the building site. It hasn’t been doing it for a while, since we have had a relatively dry period of weather. I reported the apparent leak some months ago to both the Council and Thames Water (the pavement turned into an icy slide during the winter). There is now “Suspect Leak” painted on the pavement but it doesn’t look as if any action has been taken. It could be a leak or I’m told there may be an underground spring in the area.
Likewise, we also reported flooding on the corner of Norbury Court Road/Beech Road some months ago; it looks as if they had fixed that (probably by clearing out the drains) but I suspect from the debris in the area this morning that it flooded across the road again last night, probably due to the heavy rainfall in a short time. The drain just above (outside 73, I think, Norbury Court road) is again overflowing into the same area. Suspect it’s just poor maintenance!’
