Matters referred from the Hendon Area Residents Forum (If any) pdf icon PDF 403 KB

    Additional documents:

    Minutes:

    The Chairman introduced the report. Mr Levy introduced his petition on Traffic measures at the Quadrant from the northbound A41. Additional information from Mr Levy was circulated to the Committee in advance of the meeting. Mr Cooke (Assistant Director, Transport and Highways) confirmed that although the issue relates to signals and roads under Transport for London (TfL)’s control, there are link officers at TfL which the Council regularly engage with and this would be raised with them and the response reported to Mr Levy.

     

    As noted in the published addendum, Item 2 - Petition: Speed Indicator Sign for Hendon Wood Lane was not reported to the Hendon Area Committee as the location has been confirmed as being situated within Chipping Barnet and not Hendon as originally allocated. The petition will therefore be reported to the Chipping Barnet Area Committee, by agreement with the Chairman of that Committee and the Lead Petitioner.

     

    It was therefore RESOLVED, that the Committee notes the petitions referred by the Hendon Residents’ Forum.
