Overgrown, heavily littered area on Mulgrave Road bear junction with Rectory Place

This area is situated towards the eastern end of Mulgrave Road near to the junction with Rectory Place. Shrubs, weeds and bushes have been allowed to grow out of control, leaving the area untidy and very smelly. Given it’s uncultivated condition, the area has become an open invitation to fly tippers and general litter droppers alike. If the area were to be cleared, leaving an open space under the trees present, I would happily scatter poppy seeds and encourage the growth of a much more inviting, environmentally friendly open space for all residents to enjoy. This would also invite an abundance of local wildlife to the area.

The area has been left in this poor condition for over 5 years, and has been so overgrown in past years that it was even victim to the scene of an unforgivable sexual assault of a young girl. Had the area not been so obscured from view, this atrocious crime may not have taken place in such a built up, residential area.

  • Unsurprisingly, along with many other reports made to the council regarding issues under their jurisdiction, there has been absolutely zero movement regarding the problem I reported. Throughout the entire ‘covid-19 period’ we have all continued to be charged the usual rate of council tax whilst everything we pay for through such has seemingly ground to a halt with the exceptions of refuse collection and emergency services. Communal grounds have become overgrown all around us, and strewn with litter. I wonder what will happen with the unspent monies pay by us (the residents) now that it’s safely lining the coffers of the dysfunctional and incompetent Greenwich Borough Council.
