Clear up this Askew Road eyesore

A local resident recently got in touch about the junction of Starfield Road and Askew Road which, as he says, “looks like a bombsite”. This is not just an eyesore but a waste of land – which is so precious given the housing shortage.

The Council planning enforcement team recently got an advertising hoarding removed from the site. But clearly that is  not enough. Often resolving these problems is more complicated than might be thought. But as President Kennedy said:

“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things. Not because they are easy, but because they are hard.”

One thought on “Clear up this Askew Road eyesore

  1. Ours is by-and-large not a beautiful borough. It’s great that someone has raised this as an example of where we ought to be less complacent, though it may be easier to aim for the moon, or mars instead.
