Regular visitors to the site may remember the residents of Hoppner Road, Romney Road and Raeburn Road approaching me about issues of flytipping in the garages at the back of their estates a couple of years ago.
Along with members of the local UKIP branch, I knocked on doors and raised petitions firstly to clear up the flytipping and then to secure the area around the garages and green areas to ensure a safe and pleasant environment for the residents.
After meeting with a council officer and contractor on site, things had gone quiet for a while but an email was received today to inform me that a survey is going out to residents about proposed changes to the area including bollards and fencing to sort the problem once and for all.
I have reproduced the information below and would encourage all residents to engage to make sure that the best solution is found to finally solve the issue.
Credit must also be given to new Charville Councillor Nicola Brightman who has discussed this at length with me and has been working behind the scenes to ensure that action is taken – a welcome change from previous Labour Councillor John Oswell who sent me a dismissive email telling me to keep my nose out.
Yesterday, I returned to the Charville Lane estate to follow up on some issues I had reported to the council last month.
I am glad to report that the overgrown skip on Romney Road that I reported that was concerning a pensioner has been removed and that the housing repairs that were requested for a young lady on Hoppner Road have been scheduled – Well done to the Council team for that.
However, the petition that was submitted to clear up the rubbish and flytipping in the alleys and garage spaces around Hoppner Road, Romney Road and Raeburn Road does not appear to have been acted on and I have not had a further reply after the initial acknowledgement letter of receipt from the Democratic Services team.
Yesterday I highlighted a number of issues in Charville ward in Hayes surrounding potholes, flytipping and lack of grasscutting on the UKIP Hillingdon website. Because of the council website constantly flagging up ‘error’ when reported, I wrote the post and as stated sent a link through to relevant people by email to address the problems.
Those people included the three ward councillors, the local MP, the councillor listed as being responsible for heritage and environment and the council leader, Ray Puddifoot MBE.
Below is the email that I sent
As the LB Hillingdon website is once again refusing to allow me to notify issues in Charville ward, please find below a link to said issues that we have highlighted on our website
I would appreciate it if these can be passed on to the relevant departments and email addresses for said departments made available so I can rectify future issues with them directly
A local resident would also like to bring to your attention a skip that has been outside Romney Parade for 6 months and is now a serious rodent hazard. (Pictures attached)
