All the public sector agencies have less money to spend and so are cutting down on the number of paid inspection staff.
Residents can help to get problems on our local streets fixed quickly by reporting problems to the responsible agency. The agencies usually locate each incident on a map before actioning so try to get the most precise address possible, preferably with post code!.
