Very dirty bench seat on Pinfold, Bainton.

Reported in the Seats and benches category by Cliff Stanton (Bainton & Ashton Parish Councillor) at 16:50, Friday 31 July 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2225286.

The bench on the Pinfold, Bainton is very dirty and covered with algae and lichens. It is unsuitable for sitting on. The waste bin next to it is bright yellow and inappropriate for a conservation area. The following is an extract from PCC web site: A conservation area is an area of special architectural or historic interest the character or appearance of which it is desirable to preserve or enhance.

The residents and businesses in a conservation area all have an important part to play in preserving and enhancing the special character that led to its designation. We encourage high quality design for all development in a conservation area. Carefully designed new buildings and extensions, sensitive proposals for new signage and shop fronts and the sympathetic reuse of existing buildings can make a positive contribution to its character. Insensitive development can harm the character that we are trying to protect.
