Over the past few days

April 26, 2010

Picked up the following:

1) Highways

3) Hounslow Homes matters

The grass near 1-4 Tennyson Close needs cutting:

I have been told that 8 Shakespeare Avenue is empty and there are items in the garden:

4) Feltham Arena

A constituent informed me that there had been a fire in the area and that the fire brigade had to break through barrier.  Whilst I have reported this to the correct people, I took a look and the barriers appeared reasonably secure:

5) Items or rubbish on footway

It was Sunday evening so may have been cleared but I noticed:

On Tennyson Close (outside 1 Shakespeare Avenue):

Opposite 105 Shaftesbury Avenue:

Opposite 1 Mill Way:

6) Fallen sign

4) Recent carriageway repair

Glebelands walk about

March 14, 2010

I went for a walk this afternoon and took a large number of pictures.  Unfortunately, the settings were wrong so I went back later on as it was getting dark so hoping that these pictures are sufficient.  It is true that I do not walk this area as much as I do Feltham Park, partly because Feltham Park is where I take my children.

There is quite a lot to report and I am really glad that I took a look and kicking myself for not having done so for a while.

1) Graffiti

Unfortunately not great quality but sufficient for capturing the problem.  There is a major one by the river from the Frank Towell Court Garages all the way to New Road:

The above is clearly a big problem & will be a big job, but it is one that it needed.

2) River

My personal view is that it is not as bad as I feared, though there is room for improvement (3rd, 4th and 5th pics were the worst I saw):

3) Litter/flytipping

Along the river not as bad I as feared.  Here is the worst bit:

Where there are greater problems are (i) the alley begining at Helen Avenue, which I have already reported and placed pictures on the blog, (ii) rear of Shaftesbury Avenue & (iii) Feltham Arena carpark.

Some pictures:

(ii) rear of Shaftesbury Avenue

The other side was not too bad in terms of litter:

What is clear about the above, as it is between Helen Avenue and New Road and as it on the land between Station Estate Road and New Road is that the problem is worst within the nooks and crannies.  On open space it is not as bad.

(iii) Feltham Arena carpark

This is a mess.  Here are some pics:

4) Open Spaces

This is very positive and Continental are on top of grass cutting.

Land between Shakespeare Avenue, Burns Avenue and Shaftesbury Avenue is one that is an improvement:

By Helen Avenue:

Blenheim Park also looked fine but I do not have a picture.

5) On my way home

Tagging outside 70 Shakespeare Avenue:

Damaged footway on corner outside 152 Burns Avenue:

Tagging on streetsign:

Litterpick needed between 90 and 124 Burns Avenue:

Tagging outside 127 Shaftesbury Avenue:

A lot to report and will be done in the morning.

If anyone reading this (and this applies to any other posting also) has any digital pictures, please feel free to send them and I will consider uploading them also.

Cold evening

February 15, 2010

Out and about delivering Feltham North latest this evening.  Delivered to Helen Avenue, Gladstone Avenue, Shaftesbury Avenue & Burns Avenue.  It was very cold and nice to be home.

New carriageway surface in Shaftesbury Avenue

August 25, 2009

..but not the traditional new type of carriageway surface.   Micro Asphalt has been used.   There is a little more about this solution in section five of this report.

I went to take a quick look earlier this evening (Helen Avenue end).  This is what I saw:




And, whilst I think work is still in progress e.g. one resident informed me that he was informed that people will return to sweep the road etc I will ask about cleaning up the following:


I think that this is a decent way forward for a street that had very little chance of benefitting from planned maintenance under the current formula for allocating such resources.  Other roads in Feltham North that have a very strong case for this in the future, in my view, are Lansbury Avenue, Viola Avenue & Shakespeare Avenue.

Staines Road, Feltham earlier this evening

August 4, 2009

The bin outside the shop (near junction with Cassiobury Avenue) was very full.  The same applied for the bin near the junction with Shaftesbury Avenue.  I managed to get a picture:


I will ask how this could have happened and when the two bins were last emptied?

Shaftesbury Avenue sign

The following needs to be straightened – will report it today:


Feltham Arenas

August 14, 2008

I hope to post more about this over the weekend but when I was away on my hols, I was alerted that a number of residents in Shaftesbury Avenue have been concerned about the cutting down of trees at the rear of their properties.  We are looking into this.

Not withstanding the above, it is good to see some action on this site.  The time taken to discharge planning conditions was very frustrating for me and colleagues.  I popped over on Tuesday evening.  The main difference, of course, is with the stand – which has had to come down due to fears of vandalism, ASB, Health & Safety and the like – work is almost complete.  I took one picture as it went dark:

A lot of work is clearly now taking place.  This maybe of interest to residents (note if you do not click on link within short period after this posting, the link may refer to another site)?
