A COMMUNITY campaigner is calling on Coventry City Council to resurface a footpath which has degenerated and become unsightly.
Ian Rogers, from the Coventry Citizens Party, also got the city council to reinstall a bollard at the end of Eden Street which he managed to get introduced to stop fly-tipping. It was then ripped out.
Motorists had driven along the footpath and dumped rubbish on the land there.
Mr Rogers has also called on the council to resurface the footpath, cut back overgrowth and plant new trees and wildflowers to make the area more attractive.
“This will improve the area as a nature walk and help deter persistent fly-tipping,” he added.
A Coventry City Council spokesperson confirmed to the Observer the bollard would be reinstalled and that work was completed this week.
The canal towpath nearby, which complements the footpath for longer walks, has been given a revamp by the Canals and Rivers Trust.
