Community Clean-up – 7th November

Farrans, the contractor responsible for the resource centre build, are kindly helping to help tidy up the estate on Saturday 7th November. They will send litter pickers to collect rubbish and will accept rubbish from residents on a first come, first served basis. The skip will be at the building site near the shop. If you have any more questions, email contact@prera.org.uk.

New gates at Despard House garages

Following a spate of fly-tipping incidents at the Despard House garages (often in broad daylight), the council has installed gates to make it more difficult for fly-tippers to discretely dump their rubbish. We have questioned the cost of these new gates and have been told that their installation is expected to be cheaper than the removal of dumped waste.

We have also asked why the gates have been painted yellow. This is apparently to make them more visible during the night. What do you think? Is this reasonable, or would a more tasteful shade of paint be more suitable, combined with reflectors? Let us know your thoughts.

All garage tenants should be receiving keys for the new gates within the next two weeks.
