There are now upwards of 50 Christmas trees dumped at the top of Bovill Road in front of the gate which says clearly “Emergency Access - Keep Clear”.
This happens every year.
This isn’t just lazy and unsightly fly tipping (which is 100% illegal!) - it is dangerous, full stop. Whoever introduced traffic calming measures in our area obviously decided that there needed to be a gate which is capable of opening and letting ambulances / fire brigades through should there be an emergency on Bovill Road and the surrounding streets.
How stupid / selfish are people around here?
But of course they are considerate and neighbourly enough to leave two gaps to ensure the cyclist rights of ways are protected - but what about the emergency services!?
