We plan to electronically circulate a copy of last year’s AGM (and any future Village Hall communication of relevance).

Waste collection, parking and other LBH Coronavirus stuff

Coronavirus links from Hillingdon Council

Advice page at: www.hillingdon.gov.uk/article/3745/Latest-advice-on-coronavirus

Links to all sorts of help pages including advice about household and garden waste and recycling and the introduction of free parking.

Here are some extracts:

Parkingwww.hillingdon.gov.uk/article/4465/Parking-charges-and-permits

To support our residents, we have decided to introduce a free emergency parking permit that residents can obtain during this period which allows them to park in the parking management scheme where they live. This is to reflect the higher than normal number of residents’ vehicles that are being parked on residential streets.

We have also removed charges and time limits from all council public car parks and pay and display bays to provide additional parking capacity for residents and key workers.

Rubbish and recycling www.hillingdon.gov.uk/coronavirus-rubbish-and-recycling

We are currently operating all services as normal; however, as we prioritise general waste and dry mixed recycling collections, your weekly garden waste service may be affected.

We will continue to collect your food waste on your normal collection day, even if we are unable to collect your garden waste.

If your garden waste is not collected, please leave your bags at the edge of your property and we will collect them as soon as possible.

 

There’s much more information on all three pages. Well worth a visit.

“Cancel HS2” petition – closes April 24

Somehow this petition has slipped through almost unnoticed. It will run only until the 24th April. It needs to get to 10,000 signatures to get to a Government response or, at 100,000, it might get a parliamentary debate.’  So, if you agree with the proposal, please sign it, if you haven’t already done so. Please pass the link on to everyone you can think of. Thanks!

We call on the Government to abandon the HS2 Rail project:

Residents’ feelings about HS2: Survey results

Earlier in the year, we ran a post here inviting you to share your feelings about and understanding of HS2. If you’re interested you can download/view the results here.

They are in two parts – first the survey and second the answers to question number 3: Please tell us any thoughts about the communication methods above. Also about any other ways you get your information about HS2.

The results may enlighten you, unless you’ve been following the HS2 saga closely, in which case they’ll probably confirm your perceptions.
