Launch of the Hyde Park Paddington Neighbourhood Forum Wednesday 22 June

All HPEA members are invited to a special meeting to launch the Hyde Park and Paddington Neighbourhood Forum.  It will be held at the Victory Services Club on  Wednesday 22 June at 6.30pm.  

We will be looking at the special arrangements needed to gain agreement and understand the constitutional and key organisational issues.  Our Chairman Nick Johnson will be introducing our business partners and asking for your views and agreement to the application we need to make to the Council.  We hope you can come to this important meeting.

Please see the Hyde Park Paddington forum website for more information http://www.hydeparkpaddington.org/

Pub evening 21 June

At our next pub evening on Tuesday 21 June the Hyde Park Estate Association is very pleased to be given the opportunity once again to meet members of the team behind the proposed development adjacent to Paddington Station and to give them our views.  As you may be aware, following the response to their original proposals earlier this year Sellar Paddington Limited withdrew their planning application and are now planning to present revised proposals for the site.
They will be holding a public consultation and exhibition later this month (24th, 25th and 27th June) but prior to this have agreed to come along to the HPEA pub evening to seek our views.  This will be your chance to ask any questions and to find out what they have done to answer the concerns previously raised following the earlier application.   It is a great opportunity to meet the key people involved with the site and the development of Paddington and to make your views clear.
We hope that you will be able to join us and to take an active part in the planning process.  We will meet as usual in the Upstairs Theatre Bar of the Victoria Pub on Strathearn Place from 6.30 – 8.30pm.

New ambassador service this summer on Edgware Road

Members may be interested to read of the new ambassador service being launched by Marble Arch London (this is the newly formed Marble Arch BID, equivalent to the Paddington BID which has been active in the Paddington area for some years).

The ambassadors will be provided by Marble Arch London and will work with the police, TfL and Westminster City Council to report environmental issues, assist with way-finding, support homeless people off the streets and manage back anti-social behaviour such as aggressive, organised begging.

You can read more about this and other Marble Arch London initiatives at their website here.
