Lay-by is full of rubbish

In reply to Mr Crook’s letter (News Post Leader, November 27), yes the footpath and road are a fiasco, which will be fixed. My concern is the rubbish left in the lay-by behind our houses.

I have spoken to the site agent, head office, and Blyth council to no avail.

I recently filled a carrier bag with coffee, fish papers, sandwich wrappers, cigarette packets, drinks cans etc, and shown these to the agent.

Also I have produced photos of the mess. Still nothing is done.

If these houses were being built by a private builder on a private estate, Blyth council would be down on them like a ton of bricks, but no they are for council rent so no action is taken.
