Nine Elms: Cycle Bridge Resurrected, Affordable Housing Slashed

Wandsworth Council is putting on a series of Public Exhibitions to breathe new life into The Nine Elms Cycle Bridge which many had thought to be dead in the water after failing to gain any support from The Mayor of London and following Westminster City Council’s stinging examination of the proposition.

Please go, have a look and make sure you have your say about it. There will be three exhibitions North and South of the River. Details from the Cycle Bridge Website:

Exhibitions explaining the project are being held on both sides of the river to update local residents on the status of the project and the work that is currently being undertaken and to give them the opportunity to explore the project in more detail, ask questions and provide feedback at this early stage.

The exhibitions will be taking place at the following dates and times:

Friday 30th June, 2.30pm – 6.30pm
St Saviour’s Church Hall,
St. George’s Square, Lupus St,
SW1V 3QW

Saturday 1st July, 10 am – 3 pm
Pimlico Academy, The Auditorium,
Lupus St, Pimlico,
SW1V 3AT

Report: Pimlico Forum Meeting, March 2017

The second meeting of the Pimlico Neighbourhood Forum took place on Tuesday 21 March 2017 at St Saviour’s Hall, Pimlico.

Present were the Steering Group as well as Councillors: Nickie Aiken, Christabel Flight, Jacqui Wilkinson, Angela Harvey, Shamim Talukder and Murad Gassanly and 67 Pimlico residents.

The meeting approved Andrew McCarthy, a retired solicitor living in Pimlico, as an additional member of the Steering Group. It also agreed that the Forum should be incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee, a corporate form that limits the liability of members to £1 and the necessary changes to the Constitution will be put to the next meeting for formal approval.

The Committee has been asking local residents groups what they like about Pimlico, as well as what would make it better and what the priorities should be for the Neighbourhood Plan. It has also been finding out from the most recent Census data the characteristics of the households in Pimlico:
