A £115 million programme of works, and some contractor can come along and idly do that. It happens all over Glasgow, continually. Is the problem that the council is neutered in terms of its authority over these things?

These BT monoliths shouldn't even be permitted in the first place. Pavement width being reduced by a third for an advertising board is unacceptable. Very glad the Living Streets group are highlighting this sort of thing and how normalised it has become.
Far too much needless clutter these days. Seats, bins and trees....that's plenty.

'New bus stop with roof planter. And someone’s already littered because we can’t have nice things'

So what can be done to reduce littering. I imagine there are cities/countries which have managed to reduce littering over the years. What can we learn from them?

One thing I noticed about this photo is a proper seat to sit on. Most bus shelters seem to have a proper seat. But you can't say the same for many train stations where they give you a bar to lean against. Give us proper seats you cheap b*stards!

Emphasise respect for environment more in education system, and wait a couple of generations for the culture change to take effect.

We've had the Keep Britain Tidy campaign for decades. Maybe it's behaviour leading to other behaviour - if streets are clean then less incentive to drop litter, if streets are filthy then others think well there's no harm in me dropping one more item.

But some people just don't care though. No matter what you say to them, they'll just do whatever pleases them.

I increasingly feel the solution is vigilantism. We need & deserve heroes to abseil off nearby roofs and leather literers and smash up cars parked in bike lanes. Who else looks good in spandex?🦸🏻‍♂️
