When is a foot path not a foot path?
One answer is when you have to walk around it.
Have a look at the following example near the Shawford Court bus stop.
The following example is from Hyacinth Road.
How can residents improve the maintenance of their area or their block?
Well, there are a few ways of doing this.
- One way is to start a Residents Association.
- Another way is to approach your Councillors and ask them to do something about it. They seem to be keen to hear about the challenges of “trouble spots”.
- Email your Estate Manager.
If going through with options 2 and 3, it might be worth copying in a few residents, or the Alton Regeneration Watch or roeregeneration.
