We have been working directly with Camden’s officers since 2019 to bring a better level of cleanliness and order to Bloomsbury’s street environment.
Owen Ward meets with Camden’s officers at least once weekly to tour the area and investigate problems, with less frequent meetings with more senior Camden employees.
We are currently working to implement changes contained in a report which has can be read here.
We were given access to Veolia’s Payment and Performance schedule, and our analysis explained why we see poor levels of cleanliness, and also revealed that Clean Camden reports carry with them fines for exceeding response times.
After our experience with Camden’s Environment Services over many months, we wrote a 32-page report on the issues causing cleanliness problems in Bloomsbury, with proposals for improvement. This is currently being taken forward.
