Marylebone Association


It was a privilege to take over as Chair from Julie Redmond at our November AGM and I would like to thank Julie for the energy and enthusiasm that she brought to her role. We all wish her well in her future plans.

There is a saying, "The only constant in life is change," and there have been times in the past year or so when a little more "constant" and a little less “change" would have been welcome. I suspect 2024 will be just as interesting, with competing pressures as retailers consolidate, the night-time economy tries to expand, and cars, pedestrians, cycles, and scooters all compete for space and street crime becomes an increasing concern.

Although we tend to focus on problems, we should also recognise the benefits of living in Marylebone. We are lucky to live in a unique area of London, well served by retail, transport, arts, magnificent buildings and a vibrant entertainment sector.

In 2024, we will continue to focus on those developments which impact our members and represent their interests and views-which vary widely-to the relevant authorities. We won't win all the time but we will take a pragmatic approach in the best interests of our members.

On a lighter note, I would like to wish all members a very Happy Christmas and a safe and successful 2024.

Richard Lovell
