The front street needs improving – too many empty or shabby looking shops/pubs, the area where the primary school was is all overgrown and derelict, and a glance down the side streets it’s boarded up buildings and litter everywhere. The shop-keepers and residents who are trying really hard are outnumbered by the low-lifes who don’t have any pride in their community.
Incentivise businesses to come to the area, and impose stricter penalties on those who don’t look after their property.
Stop allowing private landlords to buy up cheap terraces and fill them full of trash – they are making a fortune in rent income at the expense of the taxpayer and the local area.
We also need better local education and training opportunities for young people, and safe recreational activities to keep youths entertained and off the streets.
