Somer land complaints made on failure to clear up

I have drawn it to the attention of Somer Housing that they have ignored constant requests to have this land cleared up by the side of 1 Dominion Road.

It is well over a year since I personally went on to this land and removed many bags of rubbish.

Somer has made promises that they would clear this land up and we even heard that they were going to consider selling the land.

All of the promises have so far had an empty response as the land is now in a worse state that when it was reported to them.

About the same time as I reported the problem to them a voluntary group wanted to turn the land into a fruit garden but this all fell through.

I hope that this will now be dealt with as many local residents are fed up with empty promises.

Pot Holes Wedgewod Road

The dangerous pot holes that have been reported several times on Wedgewood Road have now been repaired by the council.

 If you know of any pot holes that need repairing then please let us know.

Litter Bin Newton Road

I have asked for the litter bin that has been knocked over by the cost cutter Shop on Newton Road to be re sited as soon as possible.

 The bin is well used by local residents and I hope that it won't be long before it is repaired.

The bin has now been re sited thanks to quick work of B&NES cleaning team.

Anti Social behaviour Twerton High Street

I have asked the Police to stop the problem with drinkers in Twerton High Street in the afternoons. It is getting bad that residents are complaining about the anti social behaviour that is taking place. I have also asked the Police to investigate where the cheap out of date Alcohol is coming from.

Grass Cutting

Many people have made comments about the grass cutting in the Twerton area over the last two months.

We have made complaints to both the council and Somer about the failures to keep the area clean and tidy and we have received assurances that both organisation's are working hard to get the grass cutting up together.

It has been pointed out that the unusual weather conditions have resulted in the grass growing 3 to 4 times faster than it normally would at this time of year.

Dangerous Steps

I have asked the council to take urgent action to repair the steps at the side of 56 Linley Close just above the Centurion public house on Poolemead Road.

 I believe that the steps are so bad that they may need to be closed whilst repairs are carried out.

Lidl latest

There at last seems to be light at the end of the Tunnel on this long running saga as all parties now seem to be ready to sign the legal agreements that will allow Lidl on the Lower Bristol Road to become a reality.

We again keep our fingers crossed as we have been very close to this position before.

Twerton Community Fun Day

Many thanks and well done to Alison and her team at Twerton Community residents association who put on a community fun day at Innox Park on Tuesday despite the awful weather over 100 people turned up and enjoyed the event.

It just goes to show that the Twerton spirit of lets get on with it despite the odds is alive and well

Pot Hole Reported

There is a large pot hole on Watery Lane that has opened up in the past week since we have had all the rain.

The Pot Hole is close to the bus stop on outside of Pennard Court and has caused a few problems for motorists.

We have asked that this pot hole is repaired as soon as possible.

New Fencing at the Hollow

Old broken down fencing now gone
New fencing is being erected at the Hollow between Kelston View and Cotswold View.

Although we welcome the new fencing it leaves us suspicious to what the underlying motive for this fencing is.

We will of course dig in and find out what is going on in this area.

The Magpie seems to agree
The Pictures show the improvement that the new fencing is having on the area with the old metal fence now gone.

If you have any comments that you would like to make please contact us.
