Council keeps residents safe during Storm Doris
Council officers have today (23 February) dealt with several weather-related incidents, including trees blowing over, to keep the borough safe and moving.
The high winds, which are affecting many parts of the UK, have caused damage to property across Barnet. The council currently has five teams out working to clear fallen trees. Cherry Tree Wood has been locked as a precaution but all of Barnet’s other parks currently remain open.
Councillor Dean Cohen, Chairman of Barnet Council’s Environment Committee, said: “I'd like to offer my thanks to the staff involved in today's response for their swift action.
Whilst there's nothing we can do about instances of freak weather, I'm pleased we've been able to keep residents safe.”
The council will have teams on standby overnight as Storm Doris continues.
Residents are asked to ensure any loose items in their gardens are secured or brought inside. Hazards obstructing roads, including fallen trees, can be reported by calling 020 8359 2000
