Constant issues with human feces in alley

Reported via mobile in the Dog poo category anonymously at 12:47, Friday 17 September 2021

Sent to Hackney Council less than a minute later

We moved into our flat (accessed through the gate) in late June and there have been constant issues with human faeces, urine, litter and flies in the alley. It’s a narrow path and the mess is unavoidable.

My housemate has been pushed around and hit by people walking into the alley with their pants down - they insisted on weeing in our alley. This is threatening and puts us all at risk. There are CCTV signs which are clearly ignores as local people have learnt that they can get away with anything in the alley. I have come home to people loitering in the alley, rummaging in the grate and being rude to me. My rooms window faces towards the gate and I’ve heard couples in the night and seen discarded condom wrappers in the morning.

Different tenants and workers are up and down the alley with prams and cases so faeces frequently gets walked up the alley, through the gate and into houses.

There is a constant smell of urine and faeces and constant flies, and faeces and urine are often just left to dry and stain. There is a regular problem with littering.

We have contacted our landlord who doesn’t own the alley. We have been referred to the gate manufacturer who agrees that the gate should be moved to street level to avoid this, but they too can’t do anything until we find out who owns the alley.

We ask that you could help us clean up the alley and source the owner of the alley to get an additional gate. Thank you
