Lib Dem councillor for Alexandra Susan Oatway has demanded Haringey Council resolves the street sweeping problem in Dukes Avenue following complaints that the Council’s contractor, Haringey Accord, was not sweeping properly.
Residents contacted Cllr Oatway reporting that the sweeper was picking litter rather than sweeping the streets properly and this appears to have been confirmed by Haringey Council in correspondence with residents.
Street cleanliness is an ongoing problem in the borough with the Lib Dems following up hundreds of complaints regarding this issue every year.
Cllr Oatway says that it is important that the Council rectify the sweeping problem to ensure that further problems are avoided this winter.
Cllr Oatway (Alexandra) comments:
“I have written to the Council demanding and explanation. Haringey Accord are paid to maintain Haringey’s streets and they appear to be failing to carry out their duties properly.
“With winter closing in it is essential that the problem is resolved to ensure that wet leaves are regularly cleared from gullies and pavements to prevent flooding and accidents.”
