What’s the difference?

Sorry another date whoopsy but the piece I think is thought provoking. I wonder if David Davies or Cameron would share this view?

Image A - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Image B

It’s a trick question. Both pictures are taken on the same estate about a quarter mile apart. Image A is a site being cleared for redevelopment. Note no litter and definitely no fly tipping. Image B is an old favourite of mine & councillor more needs to be done and the worst grot spot in our ward. I outlined in one of my earlier posts suggestions for what needed to be done and I did expect by now that some action other than regular clean ups would be taken. No clean ups have been necessary on site A.

The difference of course is this:-

A Dome Hawke camera is monitoring the site at Image A . Surveillance does work. Why can’t we have it at our grot spot along with some of the other measures I mentioned? Just cleaning up after our litter louts is not a solution. It’s not rocket science. Let’s have some high profile fines and name and shame em. When do we want this action? Why now of course, did you need to ask.
