10 Environmental Report - NAC pdf icon PDF 4 MB


The Committee received a report from the Enforcement Team Manager.


The report outlined an overview of Council’s Streets and Open Spaces, Environmental Health and Shared Waste service activity in North Area Committee area over the past six months.


The report provided open data on service performance so that city councillors and their constituents are informed of what service activity is happening in their area and had the opportunity to engage in and help to share this activity, including identifying specific local service requests / issues.


Members of the public raised the following issues:


1.  Referred to a picture of bags which needed to be removed at St Kilda Avenue.


The Committee discussed the following issues:

i.  Had undertaken a Ward Walkabout and noted that hedges had been cut back and that extra bins had been put in place. Asked for more bins at Fen Road crossing.

ii.  Thanked the officers for the work undertaken and commented that they liked the new style of the report.

iii.  Asked if the list of needles contained in the public realm data could include the source of the needles (e.g. if they were removed from a residential property or if it was an outside source).

iv.  Commented that references to Arbury ward had crept in to Kings Hedges ward data.
