Flytipping and overgrown bramble etc on waste land close to the pedestrian alleyway leading to Maidstone Road N11.

There's a problem in Tewkesbury Terrace with waste land being used as a dumping ground plus it's so overgrown with bramble etc, it's an eyesore. It's ideal for vermin of all kinds. I've reported this a short while ago to Enfield Borough Council but it seems nothing has been done to deal with this problem. There are houses either side of this eyesore I think numbered 51 / 53. I'm surprised that these houses haven't reported this before. It needs to be completely cleared and higher fencing fitted in order to stop individuals from dumping stuff there.

  • There's household junk and other stuff still there. There's a double metal gate with a padlock which isn't being used. the double gate is kept closed by electrical wiring wrapped around both gates to keep them closed. There's a TOTAL lack of security fencing for this site, fencing should be a lot higher and so that large items can't be thrown onto this site, and a strong padlock for the double gate. What an eyesore. Why does Enfield council ignore this dumping ground?

  • The clear up of this site has started but there's a good way to go yet. Are the council going to make this site impregnable by installing much higher fencing? With summer not too far away are the council going to ensure that it doesn't get overgrown again with bramble and other tosh? There seems to be a tendency to forget that this site has always been a dumping ground for fly-tippers so the council has to be made aware of this. Could this site be brought into recreational use for the local public? This idea might stop the abuse of this site.
