Harlington Tree/ Bush Maintenance

Dear Residents

We recently contacted the Council because certain areas on High St Harlington were not being maintained to the high standard that they should be. Please see attached photos of brambles/ bushes that are not being maintained on the corner of West End Lane and High Street Harlington. They are an eye sore. The grass has been cut and maintained in the same location but the bushes have not. We asked the Council if it is the same team or do two separate teams maintain the green spaces?

The Council responded and actioned with the following statement: “Our grounds maintenance teams do maintain both the grass and shrubbery on public highways. Now the grass growth has slowed down this gives the team an opportunity to carry out maintenance on shrubs/vegetation along the highways.This area has been scheduled in to be completed by the end of next week”.

Cranford Lane – Traffic Calming Measures

Dear All,

We had the following email from a very concerned group of residents on Cranford Lane.

“I live on a road where it is 30 miles per hour zone. But as my house is on the border for the 30mph zone and 40mph zone we have been prone to a number of accidents by speeding motorists. On 11/7/14 I have been a victim of an accident where both cars of mine and my wife were parked outside our property and a speeding motorist drove into both our cars writing them off due to extent of the damage. Based on the damage and the skid mark I would speculate he was speeding in excess on 70 mph. The weather conditions were dry and sunny. This was the not the first time I have been a victim of this type of accident outside our house on this road. In feb 2013 I suffered similar accident due to a speeding motorist. Just 2 weeks ago exactly the same thing happened to my neighbours in an accident which involved a speeding motorist crashing into 4 cars. I have photos, insurance claims, police reference numbers etc all as proof of what has been going on. I understand hillingdon council recently surveyed this road with a camera and found that motorists were speeding in excess of 70 mph irrespective of time of day. There was also a survey sometime between 25 years ago (according to neighbours) that there were plans to install speed bumps to control this. This never came about. I request a response as to what can be done or who do I need to speak to to take this seriously as this is extremely stressful having to worry about the road that I have lived on for the past 2 years with a 4 year old child and a heavily pregnant wife”.

After raising this very distressing issue with The London Borough of Hillingdon your Councillors got the following positive response:

“The legal consultation for the raised tables started on the 30th July and will last for 21 days. Public notices have been attached to a post at the two locations and an advertisement was placed in the 30th July 2014 Uxbridge Gazette and London Gazette. The installation of the raised tables is programmed to start mid September 2014 subject to no objections being received and contractor resources. Warning signs will also be installed at the same time as the raised tables. Once we have a confirmed start date from the contractor we will let you know.
 

Your local Councillors are working very hard in the Villages to listen to your concerns and action them accoridingly. If you have any road safety issues please dont hesiate to contact us.
 

Kind regards

SAVE Sipson Village Polling Station

Dear residents,

A number of Sipson residents have contacted us with concerns about proposals to remove the polling station in Sipson. At present, your polling station is at the Sipson Christian Fellowship, Sipson Lane.

The Tory-led council are proposing changes that would make it much harder for some local residents to vote in elections. If their proposals are accepted, Sipson residents would need to travel all the way to Cherry Lane School in West Drayton to cast their vote.

We’ve written to the council to raise concerns about these plans. As well as inconveniencing hundreds of residents, these changes will cause great difficulty for residents with mobility issues and those who do not drive.

The council is accepting comments on the proposals from residents and we would urge you to have your say – don’t let the Tories take your polling station away.
Representations can be made in writing (before 30th September) to:

London Borough of Hillingdon – Electoral Services
 Civic Centre 
High Street 
Uxbridge, UB8 1UW
or by email at electoralservices@hillingdon.gov.uk

We hope you find this helpful. If you have any problems relating to this or any other local issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Yours sincerely,

Cllrs Manjit Khatra, Peter Money and June Nelson
Your Heathrow Villages Labour Councillors

Damaged Posts – High Street Harlington

Dear Residents

We recently reported damaged wooden posts in Harlington Village. Please see the pictures; they are dangerous with metal protruding from the base and jagged wood causing a potential health and safety risk as well as being an eyesore. Harlington Village is home to many children and families who walk their dogs and this issue had to be rectified as a matter of urgency before someone got hurt. After initially reporting the matter, we had an immiedate response from the Council that they will issue orders to contractors to carry out the works. We have asked for confirmation once the contractors have carried out the work.

If you, the resident has any safety issues in your village please don’t hesitate to contact your Local Councillor and we will contact the Council on your behalf. 

Kind Regards

Cllrs’ Nelson, Khatra & Money
