ePetition details

Rat issue in South Hayes, bring back use of wheelie bins and fines for fly tipping.

We the undersigned petition Hillingdon Council to look into the serious rat issue in the Hayes area and specifically in South Hayes. Rats are getting into houses and there is a need to monitor the rubbish which we see daily everywhere. Wheelie bins should be brought back and fly tipping monitored. Any areas where rubbish has been dumped needs to be looked into. Examples of this issue can be found Bourne Avenue, Glamis Crescent and roads in and around the area. This is a serious issue and is causing us nightmares. If possible, gates between shared access too as foxes are also causing problems due to this.

Rats are an issue within the area. Known to neighbours and they have not done anything about it. We now have rats in our properties and have seen that other people have the same issue. This comes down to rubbish and littering. Wheelie bins will be one step, but cameras and monitoring of the rats and the cause need to be in place. Around the area there are a number of sections where rubbish has been left and not cleaned or cleared.

On reaching 100 signatures it will be formally considered by the Council and relevant Cabinet Member. Local ward Councillors will also be made aware of the petition. The Council's Democratic Services Team will keep the lead petitioner updated on progress.

This ePetition ran from 11/05/2021 to 09/08/2021 and has now finished.
