MANERP has always taken environment issues seriously. After all, as they live or work in the area, then have a vested interest to ensure that the environment is a healthy one.

The rapid loss of green spaces which include the concrete or tarmac covering of front gardens. This has a detrimental effect on road drainage and causes flooding.  The loss of other green spaces (even small ones) reduces areas where residents can enjoy with their families and friends and therefore impacts on the outdoor activities that inner-city communities need.

The number of restaurants, cafes and fast-food outlets also create problems with a sewerage system that was built in the late 1800’s and cannot cope with the current volume it is trying to cope with today.

The sewer blockages that occur at present are unacceptable with Lincoln Road having to put up with large vehicles unblocking the main sewer and the resultant odours that accompany it!
