Deadline Approaching To Sign Wheelie Bin' Petition
Bedford Park Residents' Association calls for local support
Local people are being urged to sign the petition set up by Bedford Park Residents’ Association before it closes on Monday 6 July.
“The more signatures that are added, the stronger our voice will be in supporting the other local campaign groups against the compulsory introduction of wheelie bins by Ealing Council in 2016,” explains Hugh Johnson, Chairman of the Bedford Park Residents’ Association.
A full debate on the proposed introduction will be taking place at an Ealing Council meeting on 28 July and campaign groups across the borough are now increasing their efforts to lobby against the introduction.
Many households in Chiswick, such as the numerous terraces with no side access or those with small front gardens have no space to store wheelie bins out of sight. As a result, wheelie bins would be permanently on display in the front gardens of these homes damaging the appearance of the properties and the area as a whole, the residents claim.
Conservation areas across the borough are working hard to persuade the Council to make them a special case but Hugh Johnson emphasises: “ No matter where anyone lives in Chiswick, if you feel strongly about the prospect of wheelie bins being imposed in your street, please help us and other campaigners to make our protest heard. Sign our petition today even if you’ve already signed other general petitions.”
