A petition with 28 signatures was submitted to the Council from residents of Richards Close, Hayes which represents 28 out of the 34 households (82%) in the road. In a covering statement with the petition, the lead petitioner states:
“Richards Close has been plagued with parking problems from airport workers who park in Richards Close and get the free bus into the airport. They start arriving before 6am and then at 2pm, the second shift arrives late in the evening. They cant use any other free bus stops in Harlington because they are parking restrictions all along the High Street.
The problems we encounter are as follows:
If we go out we come back an cant park anywhere.
If we have visitors or health workers there is nowhere to park.
They park infant of the scout hut entrances and garages.
Our road never gets cleaned, we have grass growing in the gutter as the mechanical cleaner can not come down the street.
There will now be a Formal Petition hearing with the Cabinet Member for Planning, Transportation and Recycling on Wednesday 15th February 2017 at 7pm. This will take place in Committee Room 3 – Civic Centre, High Street, Uxbridge UB8 1UW.
The petition organiser (or his/her nominee) can address the Cabinet Member for a short time and in turn the Cabinet Member may also ask questions. After hearing all the views expressed, the Cabinet Member will make a formal decision.
Can you please spread the word and encourage as many members of the community to come and support the petition.
We hope that you find this useful, If you have any problems relating to this or any other local issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.
