Salmon Brook barriers repaired – Campaign success

Pleased to report that after many months of pressing Enfield Council for action; that the Salmons Brook barriers have now been repaired.

This was clearly a concern to many due to the safety issues.

 

Labour neglect of Edmonton A10 Skatepark

It is a disgrace that Enfield Labour run Council continues to neglect the A10 Edmonton Skatepark.

Today we had a site visit and continue to raise this to a senior level at the Council.

Many issues about the conditions and maintenance at the skatepark still remain. As you know I have been pressing the Council for action since last year.

Along with Councillor Peter Fallart and Councillor Pat Gregory – we will keep pressing Enfield Labour run Council to account – as our youngsters deserve better.

 

A10 Edmonton Skatepark update

Many issues about the condition and maintenance at the skatepark still remain. As you know I have been pressing the Council for action since last year.

I have now escalated this issue at Enfield Council.

I will post an update in due course. Issues include; safety of skate surface/area, rubbish/litter need clearing, pavement access in need of repair and graffiti/tags.

Bury Lodge Gardens maintenance

We are continuing to chase Enfield Council on the pergolas still being shut since last year and deteriorating state of the pavements. In addition to outstanding playground repairs.

A10 Skatepark – site visit update

Councillor Fallart and myself visited the A10 Edmonton Skatepark.

After FIVE months of chasing Enfield Council on safety and maintenance issues, disappointed to still be chasing – but will not stop until ALL issues resolved.

Some of the issues include:

*Part of Skatepark tarmac covered with stones/gravel – following Council using as an access point.

*Litter everywhere.

*Floodlights not working.

*Trees and grass needing to be cut back.(ACTIONED)

As Bush Hill Park Councillors we will keep pursuing this matter until the Skatepark is safe and clean for the Skatepark users.

 

Edmonton A10 Skatepark – time for the Council to take action.

Call for action on Skatepark.

Disappointed to report that after chasing Enfield Council for over two months on the state of Edmonton A10 Skatepark – it is still in an appalling condition.

Some of the issues include: *Part of Skatepark tarmac covered with stones/gravel – following Council using as an access point. Which creates a safety issue. *Litter everywhere. *Floodlights not working. *Trees and grass needing to be cut back.

As a Bush Hill Park Councillor I will keep pursuing this matter until the Skatepark is safe and clean for the Skatepark users.

Vandalism at Bury Lodge Gardens toilets

Sad to report that the toilet block at Bury Lodge Gardens was vandalised on Saturday. This mainly included windows being smashed and toilet doors being ripped off.

Working with the Friends Group and Council I am pleased to say that Council contractors have been out; first to secure by repairing the glass windows. In the last 24 hours the toilet doors and damage to the cubicles has been addressed.

Another contractor will be conducting a clean with a view to the toilets reopening tomorrow.

This follows the shelter suffering graffiti – that we managed to ensure was promptly repainted.

Edmonton Bush Hill Park Skate Park – update

Many residents have contacted me about the condition and up keep of the area. This seems to have become worse since the cemetery works took place with general stones and debris scattered around the area.

It is clear that the skate park is very important to many young people and is long overdue some improvements in addition to the safety concerns raised.

Rest assured I will keep pressing this with the Council. So far it is disappointing that they took over a month to even reply to the issues raised.

Addressing Park safety issue

The Bury Lodge Park Friends raised concern about holes appearing under the fence line between the playground and building site. I got onto the Council who ensured additional fencing and that the holes were filled in.

Edmonton skate park safety concerns

Very concerned about the health and safety concerns raised regarding the Edmonton Bush Hill Park skate park.
Even more so that after nearly a MONTH of chasing no clear answers.
Yet another failure by this awful Labour administration.
I will keep chasing this.
