At the Council, April 2018

An aide memoire of items I’ve noted from the boroughs where I work, rest and play, in case its of use to others.  With London council elections in May 2018, and the purdah period kicking in for April, this quarter should start with a quiet month.

City of London

  • Police Ctte on 12 April, has a report from the City Police – notes Section 35 action taken against groups of youths riding bicycles (apparently, that’s anti-social behaviour), and action against a range of commercial vehicles and their drivers. 24% of taxis and PHVs (and/or drivers) are non-compliant, 2/3rd of commercial vehicles (and drivers) stopped are found to be non-compliant, often with multiple offences.
  • Hampstead Heath Consultative Ctte on 16 Aprilminutes of 21st Feb mtg confirm that any proposals for new cycle paths (or shared use paths) won’t be considered before 2023/24. Existing shared use paths may be resurfaced (super’s report, and appendix).
  • Police Performance Ctte on 26 April: Reflects on March’s crime figures (performance report), Monday is the worst day for bicycle thefts, and most 50% of bicycle thefts are between 1600-2000 across weekdays. There’s KSI stats in the report too, plus justification of the Section 35 notices used to disperse groups of kids riding bicycles in the City during March.
