A community victory in Hayes End?

I have received the following email from Hillingdon Council democratic services following two petitions on the Charville Lane Estate to sort out the persistent flytipping around, Hoppner, Romney and Raeburn Roads

Dear Mr Dixon

Having liaised with colleagues in Residents Services, I understand that the proposal for a fencing and gating scheme for Hoppner Road has been agreed in principle and that financial approval is now being sought and consultation for the proposed works will be carried out with the residents.

As officers have addressed the issues that you have raised, unless I hear from you by 26 October 2017, no further action will be taken by Democratic Services in relation to your petition.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely

Nikki O’Halloran
Democratic Services Manager

 

With local council elections next year, I feel sure that the councillors representing the Charville Ward will want to get on board and make sure that this initiative is followed through on with the funding it deserves – after all, the council spend over £100k each year on their ‘Hillingdon people’ self promotion magazine and over £80k last year on the pretty flower baskets that now adorn the visible routes through the area.

Hillingdon Council and Charville ward – A Repairs update

Lake Farm protest Nov 13 CD and Ilyas with bannerYesterday, I returned to the Charville Lane estate to follow up on some issues I had reported to the council last month.

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.
