Pennine Way dog poo problems persist!


Pennine Way, in Gunthorpe, has a footpath access to the John Clare Rec. Sadly, it also seems to have an ongoing issue with certain dog owners not cleaning up after themselves.

What Daren has to say:

I’m fully aware that 99% of local dog owners do clear up after themselves, and therefore I am hopeful that the recent problems relate to one or two people, who may be passing through the area.

I have now contacted one of the senior council officers and asked them if they can look to provide a solution or two.

  • To start with I would appreciate some of the temporary “clean up” spray messages along the footpath.
  • I also think a dog/general waste bin could be attached to the railing outside the footpath entrance.
  • Plus, the introduction of dog/waste bins at either end of Pennine Way, on the corner of the junctions of with Gunthorpe Road and Hallfields Lane.

Grass gets cut at #TudorClose

After being contacted by local residents, who were wondering why a small section of grass had seemingly been ignored, during recent cutting exercises, I’m now glad to say that the work has been done.

Q: Why was it? A: According to some, Cross Keys used to do the whole job, as most of the land belongs to them.

But, now they seem to be leaving the smaller section and central area that is owned by the local authority, to be cut by Peterborough City Council?

You’d think one of them would just do the whole job in one go and then, at worst, send a small invoice to the other?

I’ve now emailed the CEO of Cross Keys and the Corporate Director at the Council, to see what they have to say and if they can sort out a suitable setup for the future?

Hallfields lane parking concerns………

Hallfields Lane

Do you live along Hallfields Lane? Do you think that there is a problem with the way some cars park?

A couple of residents have recently contacted me, and said that it’s become a real problem, with anti social parking on Hallfields Lane.

Given that Hallfields Lane has a shop, a School, a Community Centre and a Recreational Area on it, it’s no surprise that it is well used by pedestrians.

Some of the reports from residents have included concerns about cars parking on the pavement and also obstructing crossing points.
