This sub-committee liaises with LBH to ensure that problems with graffiti, unclean roads and pavements, fly-tipping, dangerous trees, refuse and recycling collections, unlit streets etc are dealt with quickly.

Ongoing environment issues:

The sub-committee has campaigned towards improving street trees, including removal of overhanging branches and trimming back suckers at the base of trees. A joint project between NRA and LBH has seen the regeneration of the Eastbury Road area through monies from the Chrysalis fund.

The NRA will continue to take photographs of the state of Northwood streets and submit them to LBH as evidence of poor standards of maintenance and cleanliness. We will continue to put pressure on LBH and our councillors to ensure that a fair share of council funds is spent on Northwood.

As part of Hillingdon Borough’s commemoration of the centenary of the First World War, poppy seeds have been sown at various sites including Northwood Recreation Ground in Chestnut Avenue. The work was done by Uxbridge army cadets who sowed a total area of 10,000 m2  with a mix of Flanders poppies and Golden Coreopsis seeds. The flowers are now blooming; they make a stunning sight.

Work has started on refurbishing the playground area at Northwood Recreation Ground in Chestnut Avenue.  We are told that the work will take about 5 weeks altogether, so should be ready for use towards the end of April.

Recycling in the Borough of Hillingdon has improved even further.  Residents should have received leaflets and purple sacks through their letter boxes in recent weeks and have read about the improvements in Hillingdon People.
