Feltham High Street

Yesterday morning, Cllr Barbara Reid (Lead Member for the Environment), Cllr Barbara Harris (Feltham West Councillor), an Officer from the Environment Department and I carried out an inspection of Feltham High Street.

I was extremely concerned about:

1) The issue of rats in the area, which had received coverage in the local press;

2) Fly-tipping at the former Feltham Community Association site;

3) A couple of complaints about the general condition of the High Street.

It was well worth the visit.  Number 2 has been cleared but I cannot find the picture I took.  Here are some pictures:

Work appeared to be taking place on the Longford River, for which the Rivers Authority are responsible:

The other side did not look too bad:

We then moved onto Bridge Pond.  Saw some litter on the way:

No idea what the following was about but Officers will enquire which firm/agency left things that way:

An example of some Rat Baiting around Bridge Pond:

Enquiries will be made about the next two, I think for obvious reasons:

In the alley next to New Chapel Square:

The graffiti will need to be removed.

Cllr Andrews will be pleased to hear about a new CCTV Camera going in:

The pond in the High Street looked in good shape in my view:

Some tagging:

The High Street itself did not look too bad in my view:

    Did you see the Bird feeders that have been put in the bushes by the Job Centre . Maybe this is another reason for the rat population.

    I will presume that you didn’t look at the litter in the alley leading between the train station and the level crossing – you get knee deep in litter along there. Also, the litter in the river behind Macdonalds is amazing – there has been a football in there for months.

    Feltham Resident,

    Thank you for posting on my blog. Your presumption is correct. We did not look at that area but an Officer did tell me that the Council was aware of some issues in the vicinity around Blockbusters. I will ask the Council to take a look at the alley you mention and let me know whether it is a Council responsibility (if it is not, to bring this to the attention of who does have responsibility). Will post an update here when I get one.

    Further to my previous posting, I have received the following:

    “this alleyway has not been adopted by London Borough of Hounslow and therefore not cleaned or maintained by them.

    I had contacted Network Rail and they have also stated that it does not come under them or South West trains to maintain.”

    A Land Registry search is now being carried out. I will post again when I am aware of that outcome.

  5. Mark Bowen Says:

    I received the following earlier today:

    “We had carried out land searches but initial enquiries did not provide enough information

    Further searches carried out and it transpires that several agencies cover this area

    Network Rail have a small amount of land near the old station entrance but a London Development Corporation are shown to be responsible for an area of the footpath from level crossing to river

    We are trying to obtain and updated address and phone numbers as the details on the land registry are out of date but it has been difficult to identify a person or dept in that company that can assist in this matter

    We will continue to try and obtain this information.”
