Finchley Lib Dems Clean up Basing Way Estate
By Dom Aubrey-Jones
In response to concerns raised by residents about litter and fly tipping on the Basing Way estate, Liberal Democrats in Finchley organised a community litter pick on Saturday 19th of March. Six full bags of litter were gathered over the morning, improving the look and safety of the area. One of the attendees, Dan Fenesan, said 'Conservatives have taken this ward for granted and under invested in the estate for too long. We are told time and again by residents that they don't see their councillors and it shows'.
The team are also working hard to ensure that waste doesn't accumulate as quickly in future. Local election candidate for Finchley Church End, Sarah Hoyle, said 'we also noted that some parts of the estate have virtually no landfill bins, only recycling. This forces residents to either trek a considerable distance to take our their waste, or to leave it on the ground next to the recycling bins'. This has been highlighted to the council and the team will keep an eye on the situation to ensure this is acted upon.
