|Nick Russell is fed up with flytipping!|
Interestingly, there’s no real consensus on the general standard of street cleaning. It seems to depend on exactly where you live – some roads are obviously better than others! But we weren’t surprised at the mention of one or two "hotspots", such as near the recycling bins, outside shops and everyone's bête noire - the Black Path at the bottom of Broomsleigh Street.
A specific issue was dog dirt, with reference to the lack of special "dog bins". (It appears the Council is now not installing these bins and requests dog owners to "scoop it and bin it" in an ordinary litter bin - not that this seems to help with persistent offenders! )
On the specific issue of computerised visitors parking “e-permits” - a huge majority watraffic and parking and, secondly,nted to stay with scratchcards for as long as possible and some people even underlined this and repeated "No, never"!
Individual comments were many and varied and ranged from complaints about the new Shisha cafe in Fortune Green Road to a request for clear warning on recycling arrangements over Bank holidays. They also covered complaints about the traffic lights at the junction of Finchley Road and Fortune Green Road, the need for a lift at Finchley Road tube station and the appalling deficiencies of the Council's "customer service" telephone arrangements.
Nationally, we were pleased to find out that so many of you understood that it was the Liberal Democrats in government who were responsible for the £700 tax cut, putting money back into our pockets; that by and large you approved of the "pupil premium" (currently £900 for every child on free school meals paid directly to schools); and that you support our campaign to increase jobs and apprenticeships.
We’ve taken note of all your individual concerns and will continue to work hard for local improvements all year round.
