WESTMINSTER CITY COUNCIL

Sadiq Khan and Transport for London (TfL) have confirmed to the Ham&High that controversial cycling route CS11 “isn’t happening”.

Road safety campaigners in St John’s Wood are celebrating after an innovative three-dimensional zebra crossing was installed in the high street.

Bernadette McCarthy, 87, had thought her days of being stuck in the lobby of her Lisson Green home – separated from her own flat by a faulty fire door – were over.

Work has begun to demolish the former Swiss Cottage office block 100 Avenue Road, despite a pending bid for a judicial review.

The Carlton Tavern could be reopened in April, nine months after the planning inspectorate told them to rebuild it.

A Cumbrian couple have been left scared for their property after receiving a bailiff’s letter demanding council tax for a Maida Vale property they have no connection to.

Tenants in Maida Vale’s Scottish Towers were furious to discover the CityWest Homes estate’s most recent fire risk assessments detail a litany of “high and medium priority” issues that, almost a year later, have not been dealt with.

Transport for London is trying to formally appeal the High Court’s decision to block CS11 – the controversial cycle route that would have ripped up the Swiss Cottage gyratory.

The Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) has submitted its planning application to Westminster City Council to redevelop the historic Compton and Edrich stands at Lord’s Cricket Ground.

St John’s Wood campaigners have had their fears allayed that a historic pub was going to be turned into a shisha bar, but asked for reassurance over the its future.

Westminster City Council has announced plans to bring its housing programme back in house for the first time in 16 years.

“Today’s ruling [...] focuses on procedure rather than the merits of the scheme.”

The CS11 cycle route from Swiss Cottage to Regent’s Park has been sensationally blocked by a High Court judge in what seems set to be a landmark ruling.

Sitting in the High Court last week took me back to my childhood. No, it wasn’t one spent anywhere near a courtroom of any kind. In fact, it was Transport for London’s trump argument that took me back.

The High Court is today set to examine whether CS11, the controversial cycle route through Swiss Cottage, can legally be built.

Westminster City Council could again take action against developers who illegally demolished a much loved Kilburn pub for failing to rebuild it “brick by brick” by July 2018.

Cycling campaigners have warned that CS11 could be “kicked into the long grass” and lead to riders getting injured at the Swiss Cottage gyratory.

A High Court judge has passed Westminster City Council’s bid for an injunction and judicial review into CS11, but said he was “exasperated” by both sides.

Westminster City Council is going to the High Court to try and stop work starting on CS11, as Transport for London said it will start the Swiss Cottage Gyratory on July 30.

Letters, contributions and comments sent in from Ham&High readers this week.

Campaigners against the CS11 cycle route that would tear up the Swiss Cottage gyratory have withdrawn legal action against TfL – saying they’re better off working with Westminster City Council to oppose it.

Workers have reportedly been living on a construction site in Abercorn Estate in St John’s Wood.

A judicial review bid by Westminster City Council against the CS11 cycle superhighway has been slammed as “petty political posturing”, as its future hangs in the balance.
