Our Priorities for Barnet
1 Continue our record of listening to you, and responding promptly to your concerns;
2 Ensure the Council deals promptly with broken roads and pavements, litter & potholes;
3 Guarantee weekly bin collections;
4 Oppose further cuts to our police, and promote community, outreach and youth projects, which tackle the root causes of crime;
5 Scrutinise all outsourcing contracts and ensure the Council gets a grip on them, so they work in residents' favour and do not create undue risk.
6 Work with residents to protect Barnet from inappropriate overdevelopment and fight developments that harm our environment;
7 Continue our fight against air pollution, noise and nuisance;
8 Set up a dedicated fly-tipping team and bring back neighbourhood skips
9 Push to restore Library opening hours and full access for our young people;
10 Protect the Green Belt and our green open spaces.
Above all we will listen to you.
Let's revamp Residents' Forums so they are worth going to;
Let's change the rules so it's easier for residents to speak at Council meetings;
Let's make Barnet Council work for all local residents.
