Site visit to Edmonton Cemetery

Following the previous post about the state of the pavement linking the Cemetery to the A10, many residents raised other issues of concern.
As a result, Councillor Peter Fallart and myself conducted a site visit to Edmonton Cemetery as it is within the Bush Hill Park Ward which we represent.
From the site visit we have now raised a wide range of issues that Enfield Council needs to look at;
(1) Numerous pavements in poor condition, pot holes, trip hazards and need for street sweeping
(2) Many potholes on the roads.
(3) Need to increase the visibility of the World War II Memorial.
(4) Litter bins in need of emptying
(5) Church St need for hedgerow along most of length of frontage to be cut back.
(6) Most of site needs grass cutting.
(7) Number of bushes and shrubs growing around the older grave stones.

Your top issues in Bush Hill Park

Many of you have asked what are the main issues that local residents are raising. Well this is the first edition of monthly updates to answer that question.

The chart right is the Bush Hill Park Ward break down of issues raised with me and that I worked on in the month of May.

No.1 Bins and fly tipping complaints having been steadily rising – which follows Labour Council cutting bin collections.
No.2 Parks – issues raised are focused mainly around Covid19 breaches.
No.3 Crime – following a surge of motor vehicle crime.                                                          No.4 Ongoing road safety and increased speeding during Covid19.

June stats to follow next week!
