Yet Grange Road (where the Heart is) is relatively tidy, despite having the footfall to and from the ground. So you can’t blame the club, the fans, the entire local populatiom or the Council for the state of many of the roads.

Some of the black bags outside the Villa Chippy on Manor Rd seem to have been there months, I wonder why the bin men dont collect them when they do the rounds?

Commerclal waste is treated differently to domestic.

With a bit of TLC from all parties it could be a nice area with the Park and Villa Park obviously

The walk from the Barton’s to VP is especially awful. Mattresses, open bin bags and various white goods on the streets.

Yeah, it featured quite heavily in the Bournemouth fan's vlog at Villa Park. One street in particular looked like a right kip.
That was Whitehead Road with a three piece suite outside one of the houses.

There's been an abandoned fridge on its side blocking a fair bit of the pavement on Whitehead Road since at least January. I don't think it's outside anyone's property so maybe everyone is leaving it to others to report.

Surprised at that as there seems to be more tatters around these days than ever, I only have to leave anything metal outside for 10 mins and its gone.

Don't think they get anything for fridges as the refrigerant gas in them has to be disposed of responsibly.

Yes it could, however the sad reality is that within weeks it would return to its current state. It’s inevitable.

No it won't.

It would take much, much more than that - it is an area which has been extremely deprived for decades. Over a century, even.

You can't make things like that go away with a bit of a tidy up.

No. But the problems will never go away if you don’t.

It's a long walk from Barton's so good of locals to provide facilities for a rest.

The disgusting state of Aston is nothing to do with Villa. The locals that live there have no pride or care for their own environment and it shows. Villa can't help if the locals themselves are happy to live in their own filth.

Yeah, it's exactly the same in areas like Bordesley Green, Winson Green, Small Heath & Newtown.

They overfill their wheelie bins, then just dump the binbags next to them, which just encourages Rodents to infest the area. I know this from formerly working for the council as these Rodents would eventually move into peoples homes & knock out their power from chewing cables.

Alternatively, the council provide inadequate amounts of wheelie bins which in turn causes rodent infestations for residents?

Also a service to get rid of larger items, like mattresses and white goods, if they don't already (we have council service you can book pick up a few times of year). Not mentioned the little gas canisters...

In my *village* you can book free pick-up of large items every month. Come on Birmingham, you are 200 times bigger than us!

Its not that expensive in Brum. £30 quid or so for 10 big items.

Forgive a stupid question but does anyone actually know when work is going to start on the new stand ?
Is it this summer, next or open ended. ?
