Briefly . . .
Forest Neighbourhood Council (FNC) represents the views of residents by acting as a channel for consultation with the County and District Councils and other community bodies
Notes from the June meeting
PIGEON DROPPINGS UNDER IRON BRIDGE
A Councillor will shortly be meeting a Network Rail representative on site and it is hoped this problem can be resolved in the near future.
We are actively trying to get the pothole close to the Queen Street pedestrian crossing repaired and hopefully this will take place in the near future.
RATS IN HORSHAM PARK
Whilst not in our neighbourhood, we are aware that the rat population in Horsham Park is again on the increase even though there are fewer swans and ducks on the pond and therefore less incentive to feed them. Any leftovers of bread etc. are an encouragement to the rats.
Perhaps residents do not realise that they are responsible for hedges on their land that overgrow on to pavements? This is causing real problems at the moment for pedestrians and mobility scooter users and actually if residents do not cut back their hedges, WSCC could become involved and it will definitely forward on any costs.
We are concerned that cigarette ends are being thrown on to pavements, especially close to shops. This is illegal and, if a person is caught, they can receive a substantial fine. However, our only aim is to make our neighbourhood litter free and as attractive an environment to live in as possible.
