Sign the e-petition to reverse street cleaning cuts

Kilburn High Road Protest Last Month

Following their protest against street cleansing cuts last month Brent Fightback has now launched an epetition calling for the cuts to be reversed. They are calling for residents of all politicla persusions and none to sign the petition by going to LINK or

This is the petition:

We the undersigned petition the council to reverse the decision to cut street sweeping services and to retain the employment of properly trained street sweepers.

The proposed cuts in street cleaning will mean most residential streets will only be cleaned once a week (previously three times a week) and a reduced service on other streets including limits on weekend work. The ending of the seasonal leaf service will result in hazardous conditions for pedestrians as leaves rot and will open the council to compensation claims for injuries. Cuts in street cleaning will coincide with the introduction of fortnightly residual rubbish collections creating potential health and safety problems caused by excess litter.
Started by: Martin Francis (Brent Fightback)

This ePetition runs from 31/08/2011 to 23/09/2011.
