The funding was complete within weeks and the wildflower was sowed on the former running track in May has thrived with all the rain and warm weather. Latest photos added 29/7/19.

Broken Street Lights

street-light

There were three streetlights on the Northern Road ( 6,7 and 8) with intermittent faults,

I am assured that they will be fixed this week. W/C Mon 8th April 2019

I also asked for the IT team to take a look at the council’s streetlight reporting web-page. It is fine but, I think too much information is being required.

If you have more than one streetlight report then you have to enter phone, email, address for each report. Email & Phone should be sufficient or an option to report multiple lights.

The reporting page is here

Section 21 Evictions

5023Some residents have contacted us about the grossly unfair libdem coalition legislation that allows blameless evictions from private Lets.  It was part of the Localism act 2012/4 set up by the Tory and Libdem coalition to allow landlords to evict their tenants,  The Labour group in Sefton Council will put this motion forward at the next Full Council Meeting:-

This council believes strongly that a secure home is at the heart of all of our lives. It gives security, enables aspiration and gives children a stable home in which to grow up.
This council believes that residents living in the private rented sector should have the security to build their lives and futures, and to become an active part of their community, just as residents in other housing tenures should expect. We note that nationally, the largest single reason for homelessness is eviction from the private rented sector.
We therefore call on the Government to: abolish ‘section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 which allows eviction without the landlord having to establish fault on the part of a tenant. Removing this unfair clause would help to make renting more secure, improve standards, increase tenant confidence and ultimately contribute towards making renting a viable long- term alternative to home ownership or social rent for the millions who currently cannot access either.
