Fly tipping, dog fouling and travellers

I have today reported fly tipping in Birchmore and requested a clean up of the footpath between the Green and Windmill School which is covered in dog mess again.

I have also requested an update on the illegal traveller camp on the sports centre car park at Madeley which has been there for a week and a half now.  Many children from Brookside go to Madeley Academy (including one of my own) and the travellers are causing real problems for parents and children who normally meet at this car park.  The footpath normally used to walk from the school has been fenced off to stop the travellers driving up it to get access to the grass and tennis courts.

Last week the travellers were given until Wednesday to move on but they are still there almost a week after the deadline and have been joined by more.
