The Clock Tower

I was walking past the clock tower at 4pm today and it chimed 12 times! Looks like someone has left a spanner in the works. If you're passing at 5pm, let us know whether it chimes 13. Continue

"No, no, barcoding would be far too complicated. Just register the DNA of every plant in your garden on the Council website, and a simple lab test will check the contents of your bin."

Mark Crouch End replied to Rob Jackson's discussion Goodbye free collection of green waste
"Good point Rob. My place (a conversion) has a garden divided into two. If one flat opts in, and the other opts out, how do the binmen identify the individual blades of grass left in the white bags? Maybe barcoding the plants is the answer."

"No, it hasn't happened yet. Having agreed the policy it appears they are now trying to puzzle out how to implement it. How will Veolia distinguish between those who have opted in and out? There's talk of yet another wheelie bin…"

"My reading is that the types of usage defined in the definition of Community Use are examples, not an exclusive list. The 60% is a minimum, not a cap. Presumably the other (up to) 40% usage will be for private functions, including film…"

Rob Jackson replied to Adrian Essex's discussion My favourite exhibition in the Ply Gallery so far until 21/3/17
"Yes, I'll second that. It's certainly different - not the usual sort of exhibition you see in this gallery. I assume this is what is considered to be the latest in contemporary installation art."

Goodbye free collection of green waste

According to new budget proposals discussed at the last Haringey Cabinet meeting, the free weekly collection of green waste is to end from April 2017.  Instead you will need to opt-in for green waste collection, for which there will be an annual fee of £75. No doubt the Council will tell us the details when we receive our council tax demand for next year.On council tax, the proposal is to freeze it, but there will be a 3% surcharge to pay for for adult social care.See More

Rob Jackson replied to Adrian Essex's discussion Another one bites the dust
"Para 4.5 is a rather odd statement. The reason the Vale Practice appears to have spare rooms is because they used to be occupied by the Queenswood Practice before it moved to the Hornsey Health Centre. They were never part of the…"
