Last Saturday Labour Volunteers took to the streets of Camden town to talk to residents about local issues and concerns, specifically the impact of HS2. Organised by Local Labour Councillors Lazzaro Pietragnoli and Pat Callaghan, alongside local labour activist Richard cotton, more than 20 people attended.
Local Labour campaigner Richard Cotton said,
“It was great to be able to talk to so many residents about their concerns. One issue that came up again and again was rubbish on the Castlehaven Estate. I was really pleased to be able to tell residents about the Clean Camden campaign, Camden Labour’s plan to improve our streets and public spaces, and ask them to get in touch if this doesn’t improve things.
“Thanks to everyone who came, we had a great day and spoke to just under 300 residents.”

Camden’s Labour councillors have initiated the Clean Camden campaign, a tough crack down on environmental crime. Anyone caught throwing cigarette butts, dropping litter, or leaving dog mess on the streets of Camden will be subject to fines of £80. Fly tippers will face fines of up to £20,000.
The Clean Camden campaign also asks residents to help the council crack down on littering, fly-tipping and dog fouling by identifying local mess hotspots or offenders. By working with local residents we want to reduce this unacceptable behaviour.
