📄 Failure to respond to basic requests

From  Phil Munday
(Chair of St Faiths & Emsworth Labour Party)
To  Jackie Branson, David Guest, Tim Pike
(Current St Faiths Ward Councillors)

Dear Jackie, and other councillors for St Faiths,

I have sent several requests in to the Council and then to you as Councillors on a number of local issues.  No action seems to be taken yet I am following the advised routes to make complaints.

I am concerned that the Council is not functioning effectively and with the changes in working practice caused by amalgamation of staff with East Hants District Council I really cannot see things improving.

Please advise how these issues can be resolved in a timely manner.

This below is one of six concerns I have raised at different times during the last six months.

Service: Neighbourhood quality
Additional information:

I am unsure who to contact about these issues.  Please could you direct me to the correct places to raise my concerns?

1.  The bottle bank at the Post Office sorting office East Street includes a container which has been missing a lid for some time.  Broken glass is strewn across the pavement.  Please could the lid be replaced as a matter of urgency?

2.  Residents have complained to me about the increase in nighttime lighting at Langstone Technology Park, which causes light pollution to the residents in Langstone who back onto the Technology Park.  Please could this be looked into?

3.  Opposite the southern entrance to Havant Railway Station, to the left of the steps going down to Market Parade there is damaged boarding and collapsed herris fencing which presents a poor impression of the town to visitors and is an eyesore.  Please could something be done about this?

I have photos of each of the above concerns and would be grateful for your help in directing me to the correct person.

Thank you,

Phil Munday
