Making Hatton Garden a cleaner place for all to enjoy
Sitting alongside any public realm improvements is the recognition that a well-kept, safe and friendly character is needed for any area, certifying that those loyal and new visitors to the area return time and time again. This has been of key importance to the BID team over the last year and has led to changes of directions and the creation of new and/or strengthening of existing partnerships with key statutory partners:
- A dedicated street cleaning service has taken affect. Working weekly, Gedas our operative works above and beyond the statutory duty of the council ensuring that additional rubbish and litter is removed from the area. This has also allowed us to monitor the council’s base line agreements and feedback all lapses in this and as such we continue to work with them to improve their own waste collection.
- We have been working with the Cross River Partnership to encourage better air quality in Hatton garden via initiatives such as the click and collect scheme.
- Lobbying took place to Camden Council resulting in the removal of the large recycling bins that were placed at Leather Lane. These bins were very off putting to visitors as a gateway to the area and have now been re-sited to an area that is no longer visible to visitors.
- We now have monthly meetings with the Met Safer Neighbourhood policing team. This has given us a better understanding of policing issues impacting the area. With the SNT we now hold regular street surgeries to engage the community and share crime prevention tips.
