Rise Carr in the Echo

The Northern Echo picked up my story on here about our Rise Carr walkabout. Owen Amos went on his own walkabout and then interviewed me and Fred afterwards. We stressed that our fight was with the political leadership on the Council, which has neglected the interests and rights of the people who live in Rise Carr.
While Street Scene is still not working properly, we believe this to be due to a lack of political will and the failure to put sufficient resources into it. A weekly litter pick, ignoring the overgrown, weed-infested flowerbeds, broken walls, dumped trolleys and tyres, is just not good enough.
