More Outstanding Issues in Stapleford

Church Walk off Church Street, Stapleford, Weeds and Moss which is very slippery. 

This site off Nottingham Road, Stapleford is an eye sore and the Fences which should be up to keep people out seem to spend more time laid down than keeping the site secure.  

The end of Cemetery Road, Stapleford is still a right mess, had been for ages now. It’s overhanging still into the entrance to the Alleyway which takes you down to Cliffe Hill Avenue. 

The Alleyway that runs from Cemetery Road down to Cliffe Hill Avenue at the side of the Nottingham Road Allotments is still a mess. Stapleford Town Council are responsible for this area and for some reason parts have not been done. 

The Plot Holder above has done the bit that come off the Allotment Plot they look after. 

More Weeda coming from the Nottingham Road Allotments, again the responsibility of Stapleford Town Council. 

Broxtowe Borough Council have done a good job cutting the Hedgerow from Windsor Close to the Alleyway. 

The Alleyway from Gibbons Avenue, Stapleford upto the School has still not been sorted out.  The Trees and Bushes need ti be cut right back to allow light in, especially with the nights starting to draw in. 

If the Trees were to be cut back then this Lamppost would shed a little light into the Alleyway. 

There seems to be some disagreement as to who actually owns the Alleyway at the back of the Houses on The Mount, but whoever it is the area does need to be cleared up as it’s in a right state.  

Broken Bollards on Gibbons Avenue, Stapleford, need to be replaced. 

Whilst these overgrown Hedges are still in need of a cut, they are taking over the Pavement and for some reason Broxtowe Borough Council can’t seem to get anyone to have them cut. 

The Car Park at the back of Sainsburys on Derby Road, Stapleford is still a right mess. 

As is the Alleyway from Alexander Street through to the back of the Car Park behind Sainsburys. 

The Trees and Bushes at the sides of the Car Park which is next to where Natwest Bank once was are overgrown yet again. 

The majority of the Street Furniture in Stapleford is such a bad state. A lick of Paint would go amiss. 

The Drain on the Precinct off Derby Road is still blocked. It causes the area to flood when it rains, which in turn floods over the Pavement and over to the road. 

Broken Bollards on the Precinct off Derby Road, Stapleford.

Whilst around the back of the Precinct the Drains are blocked with what looks like food waste products. 

The Pedestrian Crossing on Derby Road juat after Sandiacre Road is still in a terrible state. 

Whilst up at The Vista it’s a weeds that are making a mess of the area. 

The Gazebo on Archers Field Recreation Ground is in a right state, calls to have it removed due to anti social behaviour have come from several residents living near by. 

The Hedgerow along the Allotments on Bessell Lane, Stapleford which are controlled by Stapleford Town Council are so overgrown and need to desperately be cut right back. 

Mess on the corner of Melbourne Road and Rowan Avenue seems to be building up. If rubbish is left people keep adding to it and it becomes a bigger issue. 

These issues were raised earlier this morning when Maggy and Richard were finished off the work they started yesterday. 

These and the issues raised yesterday have been sent to Broxtowe Borough Council, Stapleford Town Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.

    Thanks for doing this, Stapleford is really neglected, the state of the roads is appalling, to name a few … Ewe Lamb Lane, Central Avenue, Nottingham Road, as well as Derby road, the pot holes are worse than speed humps, except those in Stapleford of course where the humps are just dangerous!!!

    I think maybe it’s time not to pay our Council Tax as I can’t see where the money is being spent ?
    The council make money from the different coloured bins we have by getting us to sort the recycling for them ?
    What’s next take it in turns to drive the dustbin lorry ?
    Absolutely disgusted with Broxtowe Council.

    The small fenced/walled off area at the top of Cemetery Rd that is encroaching onto the twitchell belongs to one of the newer houses at the top of the street, I can’t remember for the life of me which house it is though. The previous homeowner use to keep it under control.

    I walk through the Vista a lot and I have never seen it in such a state as it is now, its disgusting and with broken glass and rubbish everywhere I have to be really careful where my dogs walk!
