Sent to Bristol City Council less than a minute later

Homeless people have adopted the 2 seats provided outside the Paper Bag Factory and Nightingale House. They drink and worse, all day and are roaming around our 2 buildings at will. Frightening residents and lowering the value of our properties.

This trouble started when these 2 seats were installed. A lovely idea which has backfired, and the police have been called numerous times. A special police patrol has been arranged but the police cannot be there all day and night. These poor homeless people are getting in and Frightening residents day and night.

The problem would be quickly solved by removing the seats fairly recently installed outside the Bag Factory.

Saving money on policing, making a safer abode for the many residents and a more attractive place for shoppers etc in East Street. Bedminster.

When I bought my flat about 4 years ago. There was no problem. Its the well-meaning seats that have caused the really now disruptive problem.

The homeless people will disperse if the seats are removed.

Please would the council remove these seats for our rights to live in peace I Bedminster. Thank you.
