Caledonian Ward Partnership meeting Wednesday 11 February 7 pm All Saints Chruch

team callyIf you have issues you want to raise about living or working in the area around the Cally Road then go along to the Caledonian Ward Partnership meeting Wednesday 11 February 7 pm All Saints Church on the corner of Carnegie Street and Caledonian Road – N1 9QW (map).

There will be at least discussion on lights and bike parking around Cally Bridge and dumping of rubbish by householders.  Local waste dumping in my experience is often local people who are tenants/victims of a rogue landlord in the micro rooms along and under the Cally. Their flats are so small you have to live with the rubbish next to the bed, so every morning they dispose of it on the way and little supermarket carrier bags build up in drifts around lamp posts – the council should not have granted permission for these buildings without proper waste management.

The partnership says:

The Caledonian Ward Partnership is working together to improve the community. If you are active in the area whether as an individual or an organisation then you will be very welcome to attend. This meeting is the place where local people and agencies meet, understand and influence local services.There are some big changes in the neighbourhood. What is going on??? Decorative lights are being install to illuminate the Cally Bridge, not only to make people feel safer but to make a statement about the area. Complementing this, new cycle racks are to be installed, and artists are being sourced to design them.

Furthermore, a clampdown to reduce the waste dumped by householders on the high street is to take place.The Council has agreed to pilot a new scheme that will stop tonnes of waste being dumped and causing a nuisance.

All this, the Ward Improvement Plan and Local Councillors Paul Convery, Rupert Perry and Una O’Halloran will be present. It will be a chance to voice your views directly and participate in local decision that affect you and your neighbourhood. Look forward to see you there!!!

    Thanks Will.

    Certainly the streets around where I live suffer from dumped household rubbish – these are Victorian Terraces that have been divided into flats. Every single day of the year there are rubbish bags on the street.
