Marylebone High Street
We have asked the local Police Safer Neighbourhood Team to investigate reports from residents about anti-social behavior in Marylebone High Street.
Marylebone House, Marylebone Road
“We’re currently facing a new planning application from Beltane Assets to redevelop Marylebone House, 129-137 Marylebone Road, NW1 5QD (BHS as was). They want to convert it into a much larger office block and turn the 1960’s garage into an office. The size of the development is going to significantly change the nature of our local community by introducing more commercial space, traffic and pollution into Wyndham Street, York Street, Knox Street, Upper Montagu Street and Enford Street.
Unfortunately, WCC failed to send out the mandatory ‘consultation letters’ to residents in the area, leaving many people unaware that they had to register their views in a short space of time, if they wanted to change the development.
We are very grateful for the prompt action you took to ensure that a new consultation letter with a new objection date has been sent to notify residents of this planning application. Without your help, many residents would have remained unaware of the project, particularly those who are currently having to self-isolate. Thank you.”
The planning reference for this development is: 20/06929/FULL. For further details or to enter a comment, go to:

Work by Transport for London to introduce ‘green man’ crossings on side roads at the junction of Upper Berkeley Street, Connaught Street and Edgware Road started at the beginning of December 2020 and include the following safety improvements:
- New pedestrian crossings, with green and red man signals
- The addition of countdown timers to new crossings
- Providing new Advanced Stop Lines (cycle boxes) for cyclists.
The green man crossings are part of an extensive package of junction improvements along Edgware Road, announced in April 2019. To date new crossings have been introduced at junctions with Seymour Street, George Street/Kendal Street, Sussex Gardens and Harrow Road below the Marylebone Flyover.
We have asked the Council’s Refuse Team to investigate reports of rubbish dumping at the corner of Ivor Place and Gloucester Place.
