The communal gardens are maintained by a contractor who also keeps the paths and road clear of leaves and weeds, paid for out of the sinking fund. SKP Solutions manage this, so please contact them if you have any queries.
The Street Lamp marked SL on the map is paid for by OCC Street Lighting Department, who change the bulb regularly.
If one fails, plaese call 0800 317802 and give the number of the lamppost. (Ours seems to have two numbers 1 and/or 3.
The Street Lamp is located opposite the garage of 8 Davenport Place.
Refuse is collected Tuesday mornings. As the Local Authority (SODC) will not collect our bins from outside our properties, we have to take our rubbish and recycling to Davenport Place, alongside the wall of Old School Place.
Recycling (paper, cardboard, tins, plastics, bottles and tinfoil) goes in the big green wheelie bin; food waste goes in the small, dark green caddy; garden waste must be placed in brown wheelie bins (which can be purchased from SOCD) and anything else in the dark grey/black wheelie bin.
The food caddies are emptied every week, the others are collected every other week: the green and brown bins one week, the grey bin the other.
