Brockley Mews - a tale of two councils

Weeks after we reported this fly-tipping it still hasn't been cleaned up by Southwark Council
Brockley Mews is the last street in Southwark with one side coming under Lewisham Council. However all the residents pay their council tax to Southwark so do expect to get a few services in return!

Some weeks ago we reported two piles of fly-tipping to Southwark Council. We popped back to check that they had been cleared up. But guess what? The fly-tipping on the Lewisham side of the street had been cleaned up by Lewisham. Well done Lewisham. But surprise, surprise the pile on the Southwark side of the street remained.

With so many streets in Peckham Rye running along the border with Lewisham we have found many streets and residents are simply ignored by Southwark's Lib Dems. Labour pledges that a Labour council will look after all Southwark residents, wherever they live in the borough.

We're delighted that Lewisham Council have cleaned up the fly-tipping on their side of the streets. BEFORE:
