**PIGEONS TO BE SHOT AND KILLED IN KIDBROOKE VILLAGE** THIS NEEDS TO BE STOPPED!

** PIGEONS TO BE SHOT & KILLED IN KIDBROOKE VILLAGE, SE3 ON MARCH 29TH ** THIS NEEDS TO BE STOPPEDResidents of Kidbrooke Village, SE3 have recently been informed of a planned pigeon cull in their neighbourhood. The programme of 'daily hawking, trapping and culling' will begin on the 29th of March and will also involve the killing of pigeons with air rifles.Kidbrooke Village is managed by the Berkeley Group and Rendall and Rittner Property Management. Residents were not consulted on the decision and many are dismayed by the scheduled killing.The planned use of air rifles is particularly disturbing to many locals as it is often an imprecise method that does not kill instantly. Similar culls using air rifles have seen the ground littered with wounded and bleeding pigeons. It is by no stretch of the imagination a humane death.These plans are set to go ahead in spite of the overwhelming evidence suggesting that the culling of urban pigeons is ineffective - a band-aid that only reduces their population in the short-term. The size of pigeon flocks are dictated by the availability of food; any birds killed will therefore quickly be replaced. There is even some research to suggest that culls INCREASE flock sizes. The Pigeon Control Advisory Service said of the ineffectiveness of culls; "A vast majority of those that come to us for advice have been sold lethal control services, in some cases for many years, without experiencing any relief as a result. The most common complaint that we receive is that the client experiences a reduction in bird-related problems for 4-6 weeks following a cull but thereafter the problem appears to return to its original proportion. The response from their contractor is that another cull will be required and this continues indefinitely until such a time as the client looks elsewhere for advice."Unfortunately, the Berkeley Group and Rendall and Rittner's decision to trap and shoot birds is legal - but only after they have first exhausted non-lethal forms of pest control. Can they produce evidence of the non-lethal forms of detterent they have exhausted so far, I wonder? Please share this post and contact the Berkeley Group and Rendall and Rittner, who oversee managment of Kidbrooke Village, and urge them to cancel this pointless and cruel cull, and find a humane alternative.

Stop the Unfair Monopoly of SSE on Royal Arsenal Riverside

SSE have created a Monopoly on the Royal Arsenal Riverside. Locking residents into an agreement between Berkeley Homes and SSE for 10 years.  SSE themselves claim: Multiple interruptions where unplanned interruptions exceed 4 or more occasions (in any calendar year). This standard is in place to ensure we maintain a continuity of supply to your home and if we don’t achieve this that you are compensated appropriately. SSE also claim: Compensation will be paid if failure to restore a CAT A call within 12 hours from first notification. This standard is in place to respond appropriately to incidents affecting the Heating service during the period 01 October to 30 March in any calendar year. As seen below this CAT A rule results in a manipulation of reporting - SSE submitting multiple reports for the same outage to prevent paying out claims.  The outages for 2020 of heat and hot water, sometimes both for 2 buildings on the RAR are:  23/01/2020 29/03/2020 26/04/2020 30/05/2020 07/06/2020 09/06/2020 attended the energy centre to completed routine planned maintenance. while completing routine maintenance it was discovered that a valve had seized, had this of not been replaced then an unplanned interruption to the supply would have taken place, the plant was therefore shutdown and the valve replaced to facilitate this work. As this was emergency work to prevent an unplanned interruption and was not scheduled maintenance your Guaranteed Standards claim has been rejected  21/07/2020 30/07/2020 06/10/2020 19/10/2020 - 22/10/2020 energy centre shutdown to allow for the safe installation of bulk heat meters and to install isolation valves on the pumps 27/10/2020 08/12/2020 26/12/2020 - 28/12/2020 On the 26/12/2020 at 20:15 we were first notified of a CAT A fault. We fixed the issue on 27/12/2020 at 07:09. On the 27/12/2020 at 10:09 we were first notified of a CAT A fault. We fixed the issue on 27/12/2020 at 20:25. On the 28/12/2020 at 02:22 we were first notified of a CAT A fault. We fixed the issue on 28/12/2020 at 13:35. On the 28/12/2020 at 14:45 we were first notified of a CAT A fault. We fixed the issue on 28/12/2020 at 19:53. All of the above is under the 12 hours we have to restore a CAT A incident.                   Residents are faced with an impossible situation. A supplier which does not pay out compensation for issues resolved in under 12 hours, prices continue to rise year on year, and residents are not allowed to change supplier.  SSE also refuse to register MPAN numbers on public record as a result of this monopoly agreement. SSE even refuse to provide residents with MPAN numbers stating 'the MPAN number will be useless to you as you cannot change supplier. SSE will not provide this'.  We call on Berkeley Homes to do more! Lift the Monopoly!

University of California- Berkeley to have cheaper tuition during fall online semester

The University of California Berkeley has stated a decision that most instruction for students will be online this fall, this being said they’re not compensating students for the lack of in person classes as well as facilities, they have stated, “As we have communicated previously, tuition and mandatory fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction.”  This now leaves in state students as well as out of state students paying the same cost of tuition as in person classes but with lack of guidance, facilities (such as libraries, student groups, resource centers, laboratories), and the full package that comes with attending UC Berkeley.  Now in state students are paying $14,000 and out of state students are paying $43,000 to attend the same online classes that will partake at home. It is understood that we are still achieving the same education despite the circumstances of COVID-19, but it would be absurd to charge students 10k-50k dollars a year for an online curriculum. The students of this university are asking for fair prices to be brought to those who have been effected economically by the virus as well as setting a price that meets the needs of out of state and in state students. Therefore we are asking for a better set price point that will still benefit the university but not run college students and their families into more economic disadvantage.

Coca-Cola is the Most Plastic Polluting Brand. AVOID COLA PET BOTTLES

HIGH ALERT!!! Coca-Cola has become the most polluting brand for the second time now, according to a global audit on plastic trash conducted by the Break Free From Plastic organization. Notably, the company’s products generated more plastic waste than the next three most polluting brands in the list altogether. Over 72,500 volunteers from 51 countries participated in the audit. They gathered 476,423 pieces of plastic waste in which about 43% of them had a brand name in it. After analysis, it has been revealed that a total of 11,732 pieces of plastic were branded under Coca Cola across 37 countries. Coca-Cola got followed by major brands like Nestle, PepsiCo, Mondelez International, Unilever, Mars, P&G, Colgate-Palmolive, Phillip Morris, and Perfetti Van Mille. Take a look at the top polluting brands per continent in the below image. Recent commitments by corporations like Coca-Cola, Nestlé, and PepsiCo to address the crisis unfortunately continue to rely on false solutions like replacing plastic with paper or bioplastics and relying more heavily on a broken global recycling system.”, said Abigail Aguilar, Greenpeace Southeast Asia plastic campaign coordinator. “These strategies largely protect the outdated throwaway business model that caused the plastic pollution crisis, and will do nothing to prevent these brands from being named the top polluters again in the future,”, Avoiding plastic bottles of such soft drink brands is the only option left tempting them to change their packaging of pet bottles. High Alert now !!!!

Save Trent Park - The Campaign to Protect & Enhance our Nation's Heritage

STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO CHANGE.ORG PETITION APRIL 22, 2016 Thank you for signing the Change.org petition “Save Trent Park – The Campaign to Protect and Enhance Our Nation’s Heritage”. Berkeley would like to make the following statements to clarify our position in response to the petition and in line with the public consultation which has been undertaken to date. Firstly, and most importantly, we would like to reiterate that the protection and enhancement of the listed buildings and landscape features which make Trent Park such a unique and valuable asset to Enfield (and indeed to the nation more widely) has been a priority since we acquired the site in September 2015. Secondly, we are pleased to confirm that Berkeley fully supports the proposal to provide some form of museum within the Mansion House and provide public access to at least part of the House for the first time in its history as part of its application. This has already been the subject of substantial discussions with Enfield Council, as well as community representatives and over 700 people who have attended the six days of public consultation events held to date. The exact form which the museum takes will be subject to further discussions as to how it will be funded, who will manage it and many other logistical considerations. Berkeley is also fully committed to retaining public access to the grounds. Berkeley fully shares the view of those who have signed the petition that the sensitive restoration of all listed buildings and key heritage assets, as well as the high-quality, indeed exemplary, design of the new buildings is fundamental to the future success of the development. With this in mind, we have appointed prestigious architects to carry out historical reviews of the buildings and develop designs which meet the exacting standards required by the site. In addition, we have also appointed specialist landscape consultants Murdoch Wickham to undertake the restoration of the historic grounds. Murdoch Wickham oversaw the restoration of Humphrey Repton’s Repton Park, making them uniquely qualified to undertake the detailed work required at Trent Park.
