After residents spent years complaining about drug dealing in an alleyway near Carmen Street, local community champion Elaine Bagshaw has successfully had the alleyway gated. By listening to residents and working with L&Q, Elaine has done what none of the current councillors could and delivered for local people, helping tackle the issues they've suffered due to the alley being used for drug dealing.
Elaine said, "Residents told me this alley had caused them problems for years. Their Councillors claimed nothing could be done. One email from me and two weeks later it was gated. Residents no longer have to put up with the scourge of drug dealing on their doorsteps."
