Street Audit

05/02/2018 at 1:40 pm | Posted in Cycling, Recycling, Streets, Walking | 1 Comment

We are going to have a street audit of Edward Road in Balsall Heath on Wednesday 7th February at 2pm. The idea is to walk the length of the road, noting any problems for pedestrians; such as blocked footway, poor parking,  dangerous crossing,  litter and dumped items. We want to identify who may be able to take action, especially to prevent the problems from repeating.  Could rubbish be sent to recycling?

A better environment would encourage people  to walk and cycle short distances rather than drive everywhere. We will report back on our findings, via this blog. Anyone interested is most welcome to join us. A follow up Spring Clean event should happen next month. Meet up 2pm on Wednesday outside MECC, corner of Edward Road and Court Road – take about an hour.
