Does anybody know who is the best person to contact about sorting out the ruined grass strip within the entrance of Marham Drive? I have contacted firstname.lastname@example.org twice, but had no reply and am wondering if this is the correct contact for the following problem:
(For the record I am not starting a parking flame war here, but I am sure it will develop into it! Regardless to say this problem has been caused by people from Thatcham Avenue parking here. Also people living by the Primary School, a long way from their homes have been parking here – I know this from approaching them. If you wish and without naming names, I could list all the people who park here for your interest).
So the problem; the grass strip within the entrance of Marham Drive is a total mess. The Grass has been churned up into a mud patch, which is being washed down the road, making it look unsightly. Because of cars parking here, the level of the grass / mud has also been squashed down to a considerable depth below the top of the kerb, which is now retaining muddy water. Resulting in both a dangerous trip hazard to pedestrians and a huge pot-hole for vehicles. Yesterday I saw one car bounce quite violently up and down whilst driving over the pot-hole, this happened because another car was parked opposite and thus forced them onto the grass mess. Another car was going to park on the grass, then decided to go elsewhere within Marham because of the mud! Thus driving a nice tyre-width mud line all down the road.
I have also noticed that this is starting to happen to the other grass strip a bit further in and opposite the sub-station – an absolute mess.
What with the rubbish left over from the refuse and recycling collection (which I am constantly picking up). The whole entrance looks a right state and it’s no wonder that Kingsway gets a bad reputation from the press because of this mess.
It looks bad, is dangerous and needs to be sorted out, but bollards (like those added to Mildenhall) won’t be suitable here, ‘though there are a few other options I know of that may work.
