There followed a general discussion with Councillors on a range of
subjects, and particularly on the amount of rubbish littering the road
and gardens, and especially at the Kingston end of the road; student
noise; youths on bikes spraying pedestrians with foam; and cyclists on
pavements. On a more positive side, it was noted that the road was
now well lit at night which should make it safer for pedestrians and
residents.
