So tired of this noise and road getting worse (damage), time for this company to move somewhere else! Also why had the road width restriction been removed?

Horrible waste disposal and very bad for people’s health

This waste company needs to SHUT DOWN or housing associations should CONSIdER all aspects before building homes in polluted areas like this

I am severely asthmatic and my house is dusty everyday I cannot leave my windows open daily

Donaghue used to be a builder merchant with part of the operation as waste management. The change of use from mainly a builder merchant to purely a waste management was done without consulting the residents. Labour campaign should also challenge the change of use. What Lisa and team has done could be even better if challenge its change of use is included. Thanks for the good job.

Disgusting waste disposal behind residents house which is horrendous hazardous to health

The days when commercial operations of this kind were sited in a residential area are over. Donoghue’s is the last remnant of the old Cricklewood Industrial Estate and for everyone’s sake in the neighbourhood, should be relocated asap before some serious damage is done.

Local residents have previously been informed that Donoghue’s site may be subject to a CPO as a result of the Brent X regeneration. When will this take place please?

The Council must act to stop this air pollution, which particularly affects children and adults who are sick and disabled. Businesses must take responsibility and be made to clean up, don’t just make it a problem somewhere else.

I have friends who live nearby who are suffering from the pollution it has to be relocated away from any residential area and a cleaning system so it doesn’t pollute.

I had previously been in contact with Barnet council.

The Golders Green Residents Association.

Councillor Dean Cohen.

Peter Donoghue ( who I have to say is quite an arrogant character, and doesn’t give a “jot” about the residents!) and his transport manager, Raj.

Quite frankly I have lost faith. Cllr Cohen was very, very helpful.

Over the last few years it has been intolerable living here.

Between the daily “filth” that manages to seep into the house, on the windows and glass, it is horrendous, all I seem to do is clean the house and work full time!

My home should not get so “dusty”. It is gritty particles, which are obviously coming from Donoghues!

When the “width restriction” was installed on The Vale to stop Donoghues and “anything larger than a car” using The Vale. It caused, and still does cause problems on Pennine Drive. Having lived here here for over 30 years I can categorically say the traffic has increased dramatically since that was put in place.

I know it has been removed, but the Council did not remove the extension of the pavement, which still forces large lorries, over 30 tons down Pennine Drive!!

The removal has alleviated the traffic, but not significantly!!

Also lorries are IGNORING the 5T weight restriction on Pennine Drive.

Another matter is the utter filth on Claremont Road & pavements.

It is all residue from Donoghues site & looks dreadful.

Most importantly is the massive health risk breathing all this in as well as all the pollution in the area!

Thank you for taking my comments on board.

Another question that needs to be answered is why did the council allow Donoghues to expand their site?

I have just come back from the doctor’s. For the first time in my life I have asthma which has undoubtedly been caused by Donoghues.

This company should be nowhere near a residential area instead of right in the middle of one. People are dying from unacceptable pollution levels from Donoghues. Has anyone actually done air quality checks? The readings will probably be off the scale.

Donoghue had produced lots of dust in this area and caused some health issue, now I am afraid to pass the claremont road, because I can not breath well, this site must be removed asap.

Quite simply they are killing our kids. Pollution levels are worse than China and I put the blame squarely with Donoghues. Kick them out!
