Our final pub evening before the summer will be held on Wednesday 12 June and the subject is very important for the future of the Hyde Park Estate Association. On this occasion Kay Buxton, Chief Executive of Paddington Waterways Partnership, Chris Peers, Manager of Paddington Business Improvement District and our Chairman Nick Johnson will be talking about our support for a Neighbourhood Area under the Government’s Localism Act. Achieving this status could mean that we get much better control over local planning decisions and much more involvement in the Praed Street and Edgware Road town centres. Your support is needed if we are to convince the Council so please come along to find out more about the proposal and how it could help the future of our area.
We will meet as usual in the Upstairs Theatre Bar of the Victoria Pub on Strathearn Place between 6.30 and 8.30pm. Drinks will be available at the bar and this is always a good opportunity to meet up with friends and neighbours in a most convivial atmosphere. Do feel free to invite any neighbours who you think might be interested in hearing about this important subject.
