Environmental Issues

Environmental Hot Spots and Green Spaces

Unfortunately, some parts of Muswell Hill, Fortis Green and Alexandra wards regularly suffer from vandalism or are used as rubbish dumps.

As a result of the close co-operation between MHFGA and Haringey Council, many improvements have been made to all our green sites in the last few years. We are in regular touch with the Council and alert them to problems as they arise.

If you identify any litter hotspots and wish to report these to us, please contact committee member Brian Livingston, by using the contact form.


Graffiti Squad

Bill Jago and Jack Whitehead are the Association’s Anti Graffiti Team. When the team was set up in 2004, Muswell Hill Broadway was covered with graffiti and flyposting. Using materials supplied by Haringey, the team cleared the Broadway and has since been doing a weekly patrol to keep things under control. Small items of graffiti and flyposting are removed and larger ones are reported to the council, which over the years has provided an efficient service.

Please help with keeping your area clean and tidy by reporting to Haringey any graffiti, flyposting, dumped rubbish, potholes, litter etc that you see. You can phone the switchboard on 020 8489 0000 or use the Haringey website. On the homepage go to the “Report It” section and follow the links.

Haringey have introduced an app for reporting problems, using your mobile phone, as soon as you see them. You can take a photo of the problem, and send it directly to the team responsible for fixing it. They then send you progress updates and let you know when it’s fixed. You can download the app from the website. We have not tried out this service but it is an imaginative idea. Let’s hope it works.
