Cowley Walkabouts Aim to Identify Local Issues

Published: Tuesday, 14th June 2016

Residents are invited to neighbourhood walkabouts in Cowley, Cowley Marsh and Lye Valley in June and July to highlight spots for cleanup and improvement.

Local councillors and officers are attending, so that residents can let them know about the issues that are important to them.

On the agenda in Cowley are topics such as looking at a mid-road pedestrian island within the junction of Liddell and Bartholomew road to assist with crossing, rubbish, and anti-social behaviour.

Christine Simm, Ward member for Cowley said: “These walkabouts allow people to tell us directly what is going on, what are their concerns or suggestions for improvement. We look forward to continuing to work with residents in each community”.

In Lye Valley Walkabout, as well as in Cowley Marsh, councillors will look at street upkeep, recycling, anti-social behaviour, and highways.

Councillor Pat Kennedy, Ward member for Lye Valley said "This is a great opportunity to speak informally to city officers and councillors about your concerns".
