Quick Update from Councillor Harmer
On St Paul's playground and Brook Road South
This isn't a full bulletin (you'll be relieved to hear) but just an update on a couple of things.
Some readers wrote to me regarding the new playground proposed at St Paul's Recreation Ground, with some asking if any consultation had taken place or was planned. That was the first question I asked when I saw the plans about three weeks ago. I was told that the situation regarding the funding had made it necessary to get a move on. The full plan can be downloaded in pdf form.
Others wrote regarding a proposal to put double yellow lines at the corners of some of the roads off Brook Road South. The borough has never consulted on these proposals in the same way that it does with planning proposals and time pressures prevented us getting an info letter out, as we have elsewhere. However I have received plenty of emails on this subject. The final decision will be made by councillors at a future Area Committee meeting. I don't know the date yet but will let people know when I know. The proposals originated from the consultation that resulted in a 'No' vote for controlled parking and I'm very well aware of the irony of residents choosing to not have parking controls being followed by plans to, er, control the parking.
Last weekend's murder
As a councillor, my first task is to try and assist residents with problems. Please get in touch if you think I can help, either by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 020 8560 7033.
