The results of the NBC street cleaning cutbacks

As we all know this is happing all over Castle and St James wards. Drains are becoming blocked because of the cut backs to street cleaning.It is unbelievable that this administration has forgotten so quickly the suffering that people in Castle and St James had when they were flooded. After speaking to lots of residents who are of later years it is quite clear that flooding and blocked drains cause them great distress and worry. It now seems quite clear now that a lack of proper street cleaning is beginning to have an effect on the drainage system. What will it take to have our streets cleaned properly........ another flood? Would all residents that feel strongly about this complain to the Council(01604-837837) and ask for an explanation as to why the drains are blocking all the time if the street cleaning has not been cut back.
