Tree Planting.
Additional trees were planted, as usual, the owners and
occupiers of the roads in cases subscribing towards the cost of
the trees.
Vent Columns.
Further Vent Columns have been fixed on the Sewers, and
in several cases the existing ones have been heightened.
Road from tub Avenue.
An agreement has been entered into with the G.N. Railway
Company to purchase the land necessary to carry a road through
from the Avenue into Oakleigh Road South.
This will be a great improvement, as it will do away with a
cul-de sac in a poor District.
Water Supply.
The whole of the District has a constant supply from the
Barnet Water Co.
Recreation Ground and Open Space.
This ground, held in common with East Barnet and Southgate
Authorities, is situated on the East boundary of the District.
Dust Prevention.
The Surveyor and Engineer has carried out the watering of
the whole of the roads, together with washing of the footpaths of
the poorer streets with water containing disinfectant.
