Hillside Grove Cleaning- MEQ

Original Email:

Dear Department,

Given that there have been garbage pickers along Hillside Grove, there was no sign of anyone sweeping the gutters or the depot being tidied up.  However the grass verges in Park Road have been cut.

Can we please make sure the side of the road- i.e. guttering is also cleared?

Kind Regards, 

Cllr. Stephanos Ioannou
Conservative Councillor for Southgate ward,


Dear Councillor Ioannou

Thank you for your recent e-mail raising the concerns of your constituent XXX regarding standards of cleanliness in Hillside Grove and Park Road N14.

These roads have been thoroughly cleansed.  The dumped rubbish has also been removed from the bushes at the end of the road.  The area senior chargehand will ensure that they are maintained at an acceptable standard.  The weeds have been removed from the pavement.  A third round of weedspraying across the borough is ongoing.  The weeds that have started to grow in the channel will soon be sprayed as part of this.   

The issue of overgrowth and dumping in the depot by the railway arches has been forwarded to Property Services section for their investigation and response.

Yours sincerely
