Housing association to work with council over mounting fly-tipped waste
A housing association says it will work with Enfield council to stop fly-tipping in an alleyway.
Notting Hill Housing manages houses in Telford Road, which backs onto an alley which has been filled with waste.
People living in homes behind the alley say the rubbish was dumped there by squatters two years ago in Telford road and has not been cleared since.
Those living in homes in Evesham Road and Hastings Road have called for Notting Hill to help with the clear up of the waste which they say is health risk to their children.
A spokeswoman said: “Notting Hill Housing has recently completed the refurbishment of the homes along Telford Road which has incorporated the eviction of squatters, clearance of rear gardens and the alleyways directly behind these properties.
“The alleyways behind Telford Road are outside of our ownership and have been gated by the council which has helped but not eradicated the problems with flytipping in this area.
“Incidents of fly-tipping are still being reported and we understand this is an issue for residents.
“While the alleyways are owned by a third party, we have offered to work with the council to come up with a long term maintenance strategy for this area, involving ourselves, the council, the land owner and residents.”
