The Royal Mail have repainted their post box to remove the graffiti
The Oadby Lib Dem Focus Team have reported graffiti on a post box and traffic sign in the Howden Road area of Brocks Hill to the Royal Mail and County Council respectively. Royal Mail have repainted the post box and the County Council have cleaned up the sign.
Graffiti is unsightly and if no action is taken, more can appear.
Oadby & Wigston Borough Council are responsible for removing graffiti from public buildings, monuments and some public property. Road signs are the responsibility of Leicestershire County Council.
Some privately owned street furniture like bus shelters and electricity boxes are the responsibility of the company that placed them there but the council can take action to make sure these are cleaned.
The council can also remove graffiti from private property with the owner’s permission although a charge will be made for this service.
If you want to report graffiti, please contact the Council’s Client Services on Leicester (0116) 257 2830, use Oadby & Wigston Council’s online form or contact Oadby Lib Dems.

Local residents are becoming increasingly concerned about the number of pleasure/ training flights circling the skies of Oadby from the nearby Leicester Airport. Your Oadby Liberal Democrat councillors have held meetings in the past with the airport but things seem to be getting worse.
Flight routes over Oadby are understood to have been set in the 1950s. In the sixty years since then, Oadby has grown massively. Residents are complaining about noise and safety issues resulting from so many flights over a built up are.
Oadby Liberal Democrats would like see flight routes changed so that they take place over the open countryside that lies close to the airport. We would like Oadby and Wigston Borough Council to meet with the Civil Aviation Authority to insist on a review of flight routes.
Naveed Alam and your local Liberal Democrat councillors would like your views on this issue. Please let them know what you think using our Contact Form.
