UPDATE 04th September 2019
Those mattresses on the photo on the left are here for 5 days! How long will it take before they remove them? How long do we have to deal with drug users and homeless people who are using the mattresses and container as temporary accommodation?
Camden Council shown lack of duty of care for the last few months regarding the rubbish around the estate and the state of cleaning provided. Many areas are used as toilets which the council do not clean properly and many areas are full of rubbish which are not removed for months. This creates a very unhealthy and unsafe environment for the residents who are already pay a fortune for the services via their service charges, council taxes and rent.
The police have sent us a letter stating the following:
Thank you for your email,
Officers have been patrolling the location and have also discovered that there are lots of areas that have fly tipping and rubbish left in corners which gives of the broken window syndrome. This means that due to a lot of a rubbish and messy areas on the Estate it is causing a lot of ASB and drug related offences. Natasha please could you ask someone from the Council to have a look around the Estate in the green areas of the playing fields where the climbing frames are and the other smaller parks as what is happening is the users are finding little corners with quilts and old tyres etc. to sit on and are quite comfortable. This also attracts rough sleepers which will also increase in drug use, so to clean up the location would be good and also maybe signs up saying “No Fly tipping” etc.
