We have asked the Council to investigate residents’ concerns that a local business in the Mews is not disposing of rubbish properly.
We took up an issue regarding a parking suspension problem. Residents said:
“Thank you for your very swift response – it seems it has been sorted this morning. A rogue auto-email caused panic and chaos. I genuinely appreciate you picking up the issue so quickly.”
Warwick Avenue area
We have reported these issues to the Police and the Council:
“Can we do anything about the beggars? There is a woman I regularly see asking for money near Warwick Avenue tube. She’s in her 30s, slim build with black hair. She’s becoming a nuisance but clearly needs help.
Rough sleeping continues to be a problem around St Saviour’s Church and the surrounding area.
I’ve continued to report the group of young men who gather at night on Castellain Road. It’s happening almost every night at present. I’ve called 101 numerous times. 999 advised me to contact my council’s antisocial behaviour team. Westminster only has one for its housing tenants. The other night I managed to speak to a policeman about it. He also suggested I take up a Community Trigger. I have filled in this form.
Edgware Road lights
We have asked the Street Lighting team to deal with this issue:
“You were so helpful in getting TfL to repair the lights in the garden area abutting the pavement. They are no longer working. I appreciate that one of them in no engulfed by the new construction project. But the other three are not working. Is this because the lamps have failed or has their power supply been affected by the building work? That wide pavement is now very dark. Can anything be done to restore the three lamps not included in the building site?”
Proposals have been submitted to the Council for a tall building at 5 Kingdom Street. You can see the plans and make comments at the Westminster City Council planning portal – application number: 19/03673/FULL
