If I remember correctly, Southwark Council
called our office a few years ago, basically asking for suggestions on how they could improve the area. After being pooped on under the arch by Westminster Bridge Road
(which is Lambeth funnily enough) I asked them to do something about their train arches and two weeks later they did a brilliant job with the arch on Tanner Street
(which used to be pretty bad) and Druid Street
At Tanner Street
they used steel fencing, however for Druid Street
they used netting, which the pigeons eventually bit through or did whatever they did to get in. A few pigeons died getting stuck up there but I noticed they have now disappeared. But the pigeons are back in full force on a bad diet at the Druid Street
arch, especially on the East side of the road, that really is running the gauntlet. And yes Abbey Street
has always been pretty bad, too.
Unfortunately I would not know where to start in terms of who to contact at Southwark Council
, but I believe they are the people to contact.
