Friday, March 17, 2017

Cyclists have slammed a picture of children in face masks protesting against pollution as “ridiculous propaganda” that “has no logic to it.”

Schoolchildren and parents staged a protest against the pollution around schools throughout Hampstead and Highgate which they claim is choking them to death.

Community campaigners are demanding Camden councillors intervene to reduce the impact of the Cycle Superhighway 11 (CS11) as the High Speed 2 rail route (HS2) is going full speed ahead.

Protesters fear that decades of disruption and uncertainty in Camden after plans for the contro-versial High Speed 2 (HS2) railway received Royal Assent.

If you’re buying a property in London for the first time, welcome to the British outpost of the Wild West. Luckily, we’ve enlisted buying agent Henry Pryor, one of the most experienced sheriffs in town, to help guide you through the process of putting an offer on a property and, more importantly, getting it accepted.

Camden residents affected by the construction of High Speed 2 (HS2) should be given “fairer” compensation, a House of Lords report has recommended.

From Phil Jones’s point of view, the ethical standards, contained in the Nolan principles, by which councillors and cabinet members are judged need to be applied with the utmost rigour. Not only must there not be a conflict of interest, there must not be the appearance or perception of a conflict of interest.

Anger spilled over last night as Camden leaseholders confronted councillors about the “arbitrary” and “unfair” charges they say they are being clobbered with – as one councillor admitted it was “embarrassing” for him to hear their complaints.

Anger over the proposed cycle-superhighway CS-11 has fuelled calls for Hampstead to become an independent parish council, granting the area planning powers separate from Camden.

As Parliament returns, the MP for Holborn and St Pancras writes for the Ham&High on why tackling pollution is one of his top priorities.

Hampstead residents face the prospect of hundreds of HGVs thundering down Finchley Road twice a day for years to come after the O2 centre car park was named by HS2 as a potential lorry holding area for the construction of the railway.

Hampstead actress Janet Suzman has blasted Transport for London (TfL) for its determination to press ahead with Cycle-Superhighway 11 (CS-11) without factoring the likely construction of High Speed Rail 2 (HS2) into their modelling.

The controversial Cycle-Superhighway 11 scheme was today given the green light by Mayor Sadiq Khan - but opponents say the views of local people have not been properly listened to.

A Camden school could be demolished, re-built and expanded because of the planned High Speed 2 Rail route.

Camden Council has called on Transport for London (TfL) to conduct further traffic modelling for the propsed Cycle-Superhighway (CS11) scheme to take account of the likely impact of High Speed Rail (HS2).

Campaigners against the proposed Cycle Superhighway 11 in Camden have welcomed a move by neighbouring Wesminster Council to oppose the scheme.

Campaigners have accused Camden Council of breaking legal obligations on air quality as pollution levels in Hampstead soar above national safety levels.

Broadcaster Andrew Marr has suggested the reluctance of the HS2 authorities to provide clear evidence of the scheme’s impact on air quality could be seen as “slightly sinister”.

The campaign co-ordinator against the CS11 scheme has blasted the leak of the public consultation results and has written to the Secretary of State for Transport to express his concerns.

Two thirds of people support plans for the controversial Cycle Superhighway 11, according to figures leaked to the Ham&High.

Camden’s MPs both defied a three line Labour Party whip to oppose the High Speed rail (HS2) today, but the third reading of the bill easily passed through the Commons by 399 votes to 42.

Local Labour MPs have been ranked for their loyalty in the already infamous ‘Corbyn’s list’ of Labour politicians.
