Councillors’ work much appreciated
I AM so pleased that Janet Gardner clarified for the individual from Essex exactly what the local Hayes councillors do (Gazette, Feb 3) – it’s a task the councillors need praising for.
Those of us who live in the area see them out and about doing what they were elected to do, reporting problems and trying to rectify things.
It’s hardly their fault if the Tory run council is a little bit slow in getting things done.
I have yet to see some of the things the Essexite moaned about, but then if you are intent on finding fault, if you look under a rock or a cliff you will find all kinds of dirt.
Three cheers for the Hayes councillors, keep up the good and appreciated work. narrow bridge over the Frays River has not been used or maintained for years.
Should the proposal for the HS2 haul road be sited along this line as requested by Ickenham residents and the golf club members, the entire habitat of the glow worm colony will be covered by concrete. There is no possibility of translocating these insects which have complex needs.
Hillingdon Natural History Society have worked for many years to maintain this essential habitat for the benefit of uncommon species including water voles, lesser teasel and slow worms, as well as the glow worms.
The society therefore opposes this suggested change of location for the Haul Road. road outside their houses. They live near a school, so what do they expect?
When these residents go to work, where do some of them park? Outside someone else’s house no doubt!
Most parents work and would not be able to collect their children in time using public transport.
Why did the council extend the school without providing adequate parent parking?
They could have used some of the playing field for parent parking in their expansion plans.
Traffic wardens are going to be busy – more cash for the kitty!
Enough is enough, soon there will be nowhere to park!
