A Low Emissions Neighbourhood for Marylebone

Poor air quality in Marylebone is a major and rising concern. The area suffers from regular beaches of EU limits, with implications for the health of those all that live, visit and work here. 

Various key stakeholders in Marylebone, together with Westminster Council, have now come together to apply for something called a Low Emissions Neighbourhood (LEN) for Marylebone. If we achieve LEN status we will get one million pounds funding to implement proposals to tackle air quality. 

The LEN Bid process therefore offers us the chance to help improve matters. It would put additional resources into the area to enable behavioural and place changes. Equally importantly through, if we were to get a LEN, it should become more difficult for schemes to be introduced in surrounding areas that result in traffic displacement into Marylebone. The Marylebone LEN Funding Bid was submitted in April 2016 and we should be notified of the outcome sometime during the Summer.

See below for the Marylebone LEN Funding Bid Summary

Save The Swan and Edgar Pub - Public Enquiry against change of use

For those of you still interested in what is happening to the former pub in Linhope St known as the Swan and Edgar and latterly The Feathers, here is some information. After two failed change of usage attempts, two failed appeals and a failed attempt to have the asset of community value listing removed by the developer, Westminster council have called for a public enquiry.

Westminster planning will be supported at the hearing by a barrister, Westminster licensing, building regs and Fleurets (business property experts).The evidence points to the developers losing this public enquiry and then they cannot apply for change of usage again. Below is the information on times and location of the hearing should you wish to attend.
