If you want to see Mill Hill transformed into a concrete jungle, with pressure on schools, doctors surgeries, roads, rail and tube links, then you probably won't be to upset with this. If you care about Mill Hill, please make the effort to oppose this awful proposal.
We are sorry to report that we've seen yet more flytipping and littering in the lovely greenbelt Arrandene Open Space.

We are also disturbed to note that in Bunns Lane, the recent road resurfacing has left several manholes dangerously indented. This can damage car wheels travelling at the speed limit of 30mph and is a major hazard to bicycles and motorbikes.

We have notified the council about both of these issues.
The police also reported a serious assault on Mill Hill Broadway this week. This is the most recent of a series of disturbing incidents involving violence and knives. Whilst the Police report that the incidents are unrelated, it is highly disturbing to find that Mill Hill is becoming a crime hotspot. We need a serious community initiative to combat this.
