    Hendon Residents Forum 23rd January 2018 Minutes:


    Members Present:

    Councillor Sury Khatri (Chairman)
    Councillor John Hart (Vice-Chairman)


    1)    Petition: Westmere Drive, NW7, Mill Hill, CPZ.
    Submitted by: Martin Rowell
    Signatures: 45

    Mr Rowell addressed the Committee and explained the issues residents were experiencing trying to park their cars. He said many of the cars being parked on the streets were not owned by residents, meaning residents were having to park on streets a distance away from their homes.


    Residents at the meeting confirmed they too were experiencing the same issues as raised by Mr Rowell, in addition they said cars were being dumped on streets. Residents raised concern that when they have approached owners of these vehicles, they were met with rude and aggressive responses.

    The Lead Officer updated the residents that fly tipping would be investigated and that any abandoned vehicles should be reported. £5000 of funding was currently being invested into traffic management in the neighbouring streets and Westmere Drive could be included within this study with a view of incorporation of a CPZ. The Lead Officer will follow up on reports of anti-social behaviour.


    Following representation of the petition the Chairman decided to refer the petition to the next meeting of the Area Committee on the 28th February 2018.


    2)    Petition: Pedestrian crossing in Flower Lane, NW7 – Mill Hill
    Submitted by: Father Stephen Young

    Signatures 139

He told the committee that public safety was a concern in the area due to the increased speed of traffic by Hartley Hall. He said that there has been an increase in footfall in the use of Hartley Hall and is frequented by young children to the elderly.  There had been near misses in crossing Flowers Lane. He asked that his preference was for a Zebra Crossing but that if a pedestrian crossing were not feasible, that some alternative traffic calming measures should be implemented.


    Following representation of the petition the Chairman referred the petition to the next meeting of the Area Committee on the 28th February 2018. The Chairman also asked that a site meeting with Ward Councillors be conducted with officers.


    3)    Issue: Buses cannot pass the parked cars at 43 Flower Lane, NW7, Mill Hill
    Submitted by: Jeremy Stenham
