Cricklewood Lane Clean Up

Posted on 12 August 2015

Cricklewood Town Centre is being blighted by a persistent and prolific graffiti tagger for several months now.  Although the Councils and the utility companies have been removing the graffiti, it returns instantly and is a drain on already limited resources and funds. The bus stop by the Co-op has again had the graffiti removed today.

In addition, there is a persistent flyposter advertising a "man with a van" who has been contacted and is unhelpful (to say the least) when requested to stop. These "man with van" flyposts have previously been linked with flytipping.

In the past the best solution has been zero tolerance but this anti-social behavior has gone on for months and there is just not the resources to sustain this removal action and it is hoped that the culprit will be reported.

Recently there were rough sleepers by the sub station in Cricklewood Lane. Reports to Street Link ( - Tel. 0300 500 0914) advised that the rough sleepers were known to them and the site is now clean with the help of Barnet’s Environmental Health.

The environmental health officer was involved in cleaning up the filthy alleyway in Cricklewood Lane by the corner of the junction with Cricklewood Broadway where he rolled up his sleeves and engaged with the businesses to help him clear up this site which is a work-in-progress. Please help monitor and report to Barnet.

There is a lot more to be done in Cricklewood and together we can make a difference and do hope you can help the volunteer Town Team improve our neighbourhood.
