7pm tonight – Ravensbury residents meeting in the hall

Ravensbury residents meeting tonight.
Starts at 7pm.. Doors open at 645pm.


Tonight: Three RAs & CHMP regen meeting to discuss pilot poll after CHMP MES questionnaire accused of Push Polling

Tonight: Three residents associations for Ravensbury, Eastfields and Highpath meet with CHMP regen director Paul Quinn plus his questionnaire team, Membership Engagement Services.

At the last meeting, a motion of No Confidence was passed by all three RAs after MES & Circle Housing had created a survey questionnaire that reeked of PUSH POLLING:  ie, attempting to influence the residents under the guise of a poll.

Paul Quinn has ignored much of what was said by continuing with his poll in the form of a pilot study, so we wait with baited breath…

Mitcham Sita Site on Benedict Wharf

Here’s the images of the Sita Mitcham refuse facility during a site visit organised by Sita Suez.

As many people in the area know, there are quite a few problems related to dust and odour which are worsened during hot weather. Sita are trying to improve the situation by the installation of misting systems that could reduce odours and dust. These were installed in May 2015 according to Sita.

Looking at the size of the area and the volume of rubbish concerned, we think that the only real option is either the relocation of the site or the removal of the most pungent rubbish. The latter solution has been promised by Sita Suez Mitcham to be actioned within two months or so. Fingers crossed that this does happen before August 2015.

Ideally, the local boroughs (Sutton, Merton, Croydon and Surrey County Council) would put their heads together in order to find another site because of the potential importance of this site to future homes use and the benefits to the wider community.

Thanks to the Mitcham Sita team for today’s access and the general openness to discussion at our meetings also.
