Someone had placed a big shipping container on the corner of Sewardstone Road and Old Ford Road and I received a complaint about it that others who rang the council could not achieve removal.
I spent one afternoon chasing the executive officer in Highways and was promised that they would check whether a licence for the placing of that container had been obtained.
2 days ago a happy resident reported to me that the shipping container had been removed. It was a hazard as the corner is not of a right angle and slops down. Traffic simply cannot overlook the oncoming traffic and it was thought to have caused trouble to road users.
I am pleased that this problem has been satisfactorily resolved.
