Council leader Jason Stacey visited the ward on 30th November to do one of his “Reality checks”. I was busy interviewing potential new headteachers for Little Ealing Primary School that day so I could not be there. The other two Northfield councillors, David Millican and Mark Reen were there along with council officers and representatives of ECT, the council’s refuse, recycling and street cleaning contractor.
Jason’s somments were published on the council’s website in the last day or two, see below:
Ealing Council needs to do more to tackle the issues of graffiti and dumped rubbish from streets in the boroughâ€™s Northfields ward.
Council Leader Jason Stacey visited the area for one of his Reality Checks recently and found a number of walls and street furniture covered in graffiti.
He found some shopkeepers and residents need to be educated about when and where they should leave their black bags.
However, he said overall the standards of street cleaning in the area by the councilâ€™s contractors ECT generally good.
The places he visited were: Midhurst Road, Mayfield Avenue, Ridley Avenue, Northcroft Road, Alley by number 47 Belsize Avenue/junction with Northcroft Road, Belsize Avenue, Derwent Yard, Derwent Road, Overdale Road, Weymouth Avenue, Airedale Road, South Ealing Road, North Road, Chandos Avenue, Little Ealing Lane, Niagara Avenue, Blondin Avenue and Cramner Avenue.
