Concerns over the Green Chain

The amount of rubbish building up along the Green Chain Link has come in for sharp criticism from Kidbrooke councillor Graeme Coombes. Graeme lives right next to the Link, which runs past Mansergh Close and along Hornfair Park and has often seen examples of random fly tipping and a general accumulation of litter.

Graeme comments: “As usual, Cleansweep have proved to be totally ineffective with regard to ensuring regular cleaning of the Green Chain Link. It's not acceptable that people out for a pleasant walk through our green spaces should have to wade through a sea of litter. More regular checks are needed to keep our environment clean and green.”

Conservatives have established that a £9k pa contribution to the Green Chain Walk is part of a programme of cuts considered by the Labour Party if they win the Council elections in May.
