Westbourne Ward Labour Action Report - Mar 18

From your three Westbourne Labour Councillors David Boothroyd, Adam Hug and Papya Qureshi.

Alfred Road

We have asked the Parking Department to investigate this issue:

“There are cars that stop and leave their cars unattended on the junction into Alfred Road, blocking entry into the road. They are always there in the morning and in the afternoon so we find it very hard to leave Alfred Road to go to Harrow Road. They should park away from the junction.”

The Parking Team say:

“We will bring this matter to our marshals’ attention and ask them to attend at both school opening and closing times to access the issues and where required take appropriate action against any offending vehicles.”

Metropolitan pub, Great Western Road

Residents have asked if we know why the Metropolitan pub on Great Western Road has closed down. They say it was an “important part of the life of the neighbourhood.”

Metropolitan Pubs/Greene King who used to own the site are refusing to give details about why they sold the pub but they have told us that it has been bought by a new owner, the Max Barney Pub Company. We are urgently looking into what this company plans to do with the Metropolitan as there have been concerns about their previous purchase of the Salt House pub in Abbey Road.
