We note the longstanding problems caused by the Donoghue skip hire and waste management company and call on Barnet Council to support its relocation to a more suitable site as soon as possible.
Before Donoghue changed their business to entirely commercial, it wasn’t too bad.
yours sincerely, Maureen Byrne
The fine dust pollutes the air, which comes over daily from Donoghue into our estate , this dust is from breaking down the builder rubbish in their on site waste crusher facility.
There is constantly a layer of fine dust on our vehicles and on our windows, even the fine dust blows into our houses when we have the windows open for ventilation. This dust is possibly toxic.
Mainly Donoghue employees/contractors use our road as free parking for their vehicles, which put at lot of strain onto our community.
Those employees parking constantly on our estate road, Mon to Fri from around 6:15 am to 6 pm.
They park both sides of the access and egress roads.
We had several incidents, where by few of our residents needed medical ambulance attention and the ambulance vehicle was not able to drive into the middle of the estate. The access/egress way was to narrow to allow the ambulance vehicle to pass by the parked vehicles.
Even delivery vehicles have difficulty trying to enter our estate.
Their waste disposal site isn’t the only one they have, they have another one in Watford.
There must be already a plan in hand, for relocation of their waste crusher facility site from Claremont Road?
Speed restrictions on Vale has been removed and I believe is them job!
It is not save for children!
my vehicle has to be cleaned at my expense twice a week because its permanently covered under a cloud of dust.
i cannot have my flat windows open at all either, for fear of choking from the pollution.
They also have a road sweeping vehicle which drives up and down claremont rd every hour all day, which doesn’t help at all.
in fact it exasperates the problem, churning all the dust from the road surface back up and floating around all over again.
I have grandchildren, and i don’t wish them to be unfairly subjected to this pollution, which is damaging their lungs.
its enough to consider moving out of my home.
I just hope that they will be forced to move out because its like living in a rubbish dump for residents here.
So please do something and also sometimes my daughters come over for weekend,, they say to me it is hard to. Rests on this flat.
