Street planters unmaintained

Reported via desktop in the Street Cleansing and Litter category anonymously at 15:09, Saturday 30 July 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

These wooden planters which were installed only a year or so back, no doubt at some cost, seem totally uncared for and have become litter collecting sites. These give a poor impression of Orpington to visitors coming from the station. Please either maintain or remove.
