Sent to London Borough of Bexley less than a minute later

There is a pothole on the bend in Woodlands Avenue, which needs to be filled.

The alley at the end of Woodlands Avenue (Annandale Road end/even side of Woodlands Ave) has a lot of rubbish, mess, fly tipping and silver canisters littered everywhere. This needs to be cleared away.

  • The issues within these alleyways within Woodlands Avenue is now becoming a SERIOUS HEALTH HAZARD and needs URGENT, URGENT ATTENTION PLEASE. The mess and blatant fly-tipping is now encouraging others to do this more frequently. Also as the appearance looks so derelict it is influencing an increase in gangs of teenagers congregating within these alleyways to undertake recreational drugs which in turn is now becoming a serious SAFEGUARDING concern for my children and other children who live near by. Yesterday I had to request a group of said teenagers to move along as they were in the alleyway taking recreational drugs in front of children. These teenagers have no regard for Police as they have been threatened with this before. See attached photos of alleyways. I cannot stress the negative impact this is having on our and the elderly neighbours within the road. What needs to happen is the alleyways cleared ASAP and residents using this to dump rubbish out of their back gates need to be held accountable or indeed some form of deterrent/gate erected within the alleyways to stop such worrying activities to occur. I will go on record now and warn you (our council) this issue will only escalate into serious disorder for us who live in this street.
