As autumn has arrived, street sweeping of the kerbs, channels and carriageways of our roads is done regularly.
Sweeping footpaths is not part of the regular maintenance work of Marlborough Roads unless a definite safety risk is being caused by debris, so it is appreciated whenever residents are able to assist in keeping the footpaths clear outside their properties.
Street flooding can be prevented by the simple neighbourly act of removing rubbish or leaves from roadside drains.
Residents can help by checking street drains outside their properties when heavy rain is forecast. If you're in a low-lying or flood-prone area then the simple act of clearing away rubbish or leaves may avert flooding.
If you spot any blockages or if you need a hand to clear a drain or footpath, call the Council, Ph: 03 520 7400 .
