Overgown, full of rubbish and smells!!

Reported in the Street cleaning category anonymously at 09:14, Wednesday 9 September 2020

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

The canal bank and pavememt opposite 154 -162 Waterside Close and adjacent to 164 is disgusting. It is totally overgrown, full of dumped rubbish, Ie mattress, bed base, shopping trolleys, children's toys not to mention takeaway food wrappers and other rubbish thrown or blown there. Brambles and other plants are encroaching onto pavement but you can't walk on cycle path as hedges at the properties are totally overgown. There is a constant smell of rotten food coming from it. The fencing border is also broken so a child could easiky fall down bank, into the mess and hurt themselves! Having spoken to a peabody employee I am told that they look the other side of the canal, which is looked after by iclean and cut back and well presented.

I pay service charge to Peabody and council tax to Greenwich Council so I think this bank should be doubly looked after!!! Only last week, I saw 2 people sitting in the overgrown areas taking drugs and where obviously drunk. Not something I wish my children to see,

  • This area , opposite 152, has not been cleared for YEARS, it absolutely stinks, people seem to think it's ok to dump rubbish here, even seen one woman purposely stop and empty rubbish from her bag. There's a bed , chairs , trampoline and untold face coverings. Peabody have said the land belongs to Greenwich council, so will not touch it, have told me they've sent emails to Greenwich, but that was ages ago. It's an absolute disgrace, why do we pay council tax? Surely someone should clear this up.

  • Only posted yesterday, and there's even more rubbish dumped. How would you like that by your fence? Someone needs to sort this NOW.

  • Even more rubbish, at least 10 black sacks of rubbish and a hoover has now been added to the dump. Rubbish is breeding rubbish. Royal Greenwich , Please clean this area and erect suitable fencing to stop fly tipping of this sort. I believe we pay for street cleaning as part of our council tax.

  • Upon walking back from Thamesmead town centre and having to walk past our local dump (@ waterside close), I have counted at least 25 discarded face masks! No wonder Covid-19 is on the increase is RGB.

    This area needs to be monitored by CCTV. Waterside close has two problem areas where rubbish is dumped constantly, it needs to be resolved. Between yourselves and Peabody, you are treating residents appalingly

  • How can this be "passed to Peabody " when I have been told the land does not belong to them?

  • I think Greenwich Council and Peabody are treating us appallingly. I have been categorically informed by Peabody that this issue is down to Royal Greenwich! Who is passing the buck or not telling the truth. Perhaps our local MP can assist

  • Someone has actually set some of this rubbish alight, luckily it didn't spread, could of caused some serious damage . When is this matter going to be sorted?
