I AM very disappointed at the level of 'street clutter' on the high street recently.

Street clutter such as irresponsibly placed shop advertising signs (A-Boards) and pavement café furniture can obstruct and hamper a person's progress on the street.

Retailers need to realise that street clutter items such as these are major obstacles for pedestrians, especially those who are blind or partially sighted.

A recent survey by Guide Dogs for its Streets Ahead campaign showed 97 per cent of those with sight loss experience problems with street clutter regularly.

A decluttered high street not only makes it a safer place for those who are blind or partially sighted, but also a nicer, more inviting place for all shoppers.

Please email campaigns@guidedogs.org.uk for more information about their campaign and survey findings.
