Vandalised Street Signs To Be Replaced.

Recently I reported on the street signs that have been vandalised on the Springhill Estate

Its always sad when a neighbourhood attracts all the wrong sort of attention, for all the wrong reasons. But the road signs have been vandalised and it is causing real difficulties for delivery drivers and those that are not familiar with the street scene.

Your Councillors have reported the matter. We are now informed that the Authority have stated –  “Regarding the issue with the street nameplates on the Springhill Estate.

The officer responsible , has attended site and as you can see from his reply he intends to replace the signs rather than repaint them.  We batch order street name plates to get the best price so the vandalised locations  will be added to the next order.”

I do hope that residents will find this action acceptable. It goes without saying that if you do have any names who were responsible for daubing this paint on the street signs? Could you please tell the Police!
