  • Two opertaives ,with leaf blowers, cleared most of the pavement area in a short section of this road, followed by a mechanical sweeper . However , as always reported, this road is heavily parked without sufficient space for the sweeper to pull into sections of the kerb. Therefore , piles of leaves and rubbish remainin in the gutters. Manual sweeping with a broom was needed to clear this .

  • This road has been inspected by Bromley and its condition noted and passed to our street cleansing contractor. Leaf fall is a borough wide issue and whilst we cannot respond to each ad-hoc request as they get reported, we have instructed our contractor to arrange for this road to be caught up as soon as is practical. Leafing attendance focusses on clearing the footways initially and verges and carriageways may be cleared on subsequent attendance or as part of routine schedules.

    From October to January, our autumn leaf clearance programme provides additional crews and equipment to clear leaves from streets that are known to have the highest proportion of leaves and therefore a priority.

    Whilst our routine cleansing frequencies can be disrupted by the leafing season, please be assured that our contractors are working hard to ensure that any backlogs are recovered at the earliest possible opportunity.

    To assist us at this time we would ask residents not to sweep leaves from their property into the road and remember that leaves can be disposed of by home composting, through the Council's Green Garden Waste scheme or taken to our refuse and recycling centres.
