In March, this year, I contacted our beloved Council about several matters concerning the [potentially] lovely Gardens.
I particularly wanted to know:
- why 6 double seats had been removed last year and not replaced.
- what was happening about the rat infestation and the seemingly untouched white rat-traps
- why the lighting in the main section was so inadequate.
After a flurry of emails, and no adequate response, i started the process again.
It has taken over 6 months - and Summer has been and gone - but last week, after a particularly terse email from me, 4 new double seats were placed in the Gardens.
I am going to meet with some personnel regarding the other matters.
Question: Why is it SO difficult to obtain positive action from Southwark Council
about relatively simple matters, even using the 'correct' links from their own website?
Answers on a Postcard!
I was, however, chuffed to see ALL the seats occupied, on a particularly lovely day this week - the day after they were replaced.
Vive la Revolution! :-)
