Fly-tipping update: Alasdair writes: "Fly tipping has been a persistent problem in Queen's Park & Charminster, especially around the footpaths by the Wessex Way. There are a number of known hotspots which I check regularly.
"I have also spoken to residents of Chelsea Gardens who report that their bin store is a regular target for fly tippers. I will be contacting Sovereign Housing to make sure their CCTV is enabled so we can start gathering evidence and put a stop to it.
"Fly tipping on the corner of Stewart Road has been reported." [Facebook post with photos...] 9th May 2023
