Blackness area walkabout

Yesterday, along with council officers from Housing and Community Safety Wardens, I took part in a walkabout around the Blackness area.   The six-monthly walkabouts take place in a number of areas (Pentland and Logie are other examples) and are a useful way to look at local issues and problems and ensure these are taken up and resolved.

Here's a couple of issues picked up from yesterday's walkabout:
Eurobins in Peddie Street - I have raised the emptying schedule with the Environment Department
Tree bed in Blackness Avenue - now a muddy trip hazard since the removal of the tree - I have taken this up with the City Council
