So many people have complained about the state of Lodge Rd, which falls between our two areas, that the Inner and Outer Avenue Residents’ Associations have joined forces to see if we can kick start a project to give it some TLC.

Neither organisation has the capacity to take this on itself so a first step is to survey the residents and businesses along the road to find out their views and see if they would be wiling to get involved.

We’ll be doing this over the next few weeks and hope, with the support of our Councillors, to then call a public meeting to rally support and see what can be done.

Here is a copy of the survey we will be using; if you live in Lodge Rd or nearby and have a view then please do fill it in and email it back to us at
