Letter from South Acton Ward
Catch up on what's planned after Forum meeting
The next South Acton Ward Forum will be on Tuesday, 5th January, 2010, at Acton High School at 7pm; we have around £12 thousand still to spend; there may be a report on Twyford sports ground.
The forum meeting on 15th October approved the request to the leader of the council to approve the crossing on Uxbridge Road bt Tesco's, parking in Church Road was discussed; the expenditure on hiring the hall has exceeded the budget so the leaflets advertising the meeting have been cut so that publicity had to be by email and word-of-mouth. However, a leaflet should be coming out around Christmas.
We had two replies to the request from officers for views on existing controlled parking zones or suggestions for new ones which have been passed on.
The ward has been offered funding for improvements to Berrymede field and the play areas at South Acton Rec and Avenue Road. What do residents round those areas think?
We are waiting for the alterations to the High Street bus stops to move the one at McDonald's, TfL wants to terminate the 427 at Acton Town Hall and officers want to make some changes to parking in the High Street; we have asked the officers to minimise the desruption after all the closures this year.
As John was going to Ealing for Remembrance Sunday he found the police had cordoned off part of Twyford Avenue for a gas leak. Did anyone have problems?
