Dear Councillors,

I am writing to you regarding the pedestrian crossing on East Street, close to the junction with North and South Streets where the markings are very worn to the point of being almost invisible to drivers coming from the East.

This is potentially quite dangerous.  I have informed Hampshire Highways but it would carry additional weight if you could follow it up please.  (Photo attached)

I have emailed you in the past about a number of issues in the ward.  There are some outstanding issues including:

  • Rubbish left directly opposite the south entrance to the railway station.  This is still there!
  • Recycled glass containers both outside the post office sorting centre and at Green Pond Corner where lids are either missing or badly damaged with glass on the floor near the bins.&nvsp; I have been promised by Norse that the bins will be replaced but no action yet.
  • I also sent you another email about problems of light pollution at Langstone from the Technology Park and asked if the level of lighting could be reviewed.

These are all issues raised by residents of St Faiths.  They are issues which have the potential to improve our ward and make it a better place to live.

To date I have only had a very brief response regarding the glass recycling containers which questioned whether there was a problem.  I replied detailing why and where there was damage and broken glass.  Since then the problem has got worse, with several containers having lost their lids completely.

Please could you respond to this email and explain what action you intend to take on these matters.

Yours sincerely,

Phil Munday
