Area Action Group


Monday, 26 November 2018 - Monday, 26 November 2018
8.00pm -9.30pm

Starting later than usual, 8.00pm - 9.30pm, the agenda is mainly about parking.

The result of the recent(ish) consultation about changing CA-D hours to 24/7 for permit holders; most respondents wanted the hours left as they are - 8.60-6.30 M-F, and 8.30-1.30 on Saturday. The officer responsible is coming to explain.

When is an "improvement" for some an inconvenience to others? There's an update on proposals for greening our ward and reducing incoming parking pollution (including Bloomsbury Square improvements, West End Project and Princeton Street).

And to kick of the proceedings - the fall-out following the autumn budget. Bigger cuts to local spending? Since 2010 the government has cut Camden's annual budget by 49% - a reduction £169 million. By 2022 it's estimated that a further £40 million will be cut each year. For those of you who don't know, although Camden collects the Council Tax it's immediately all given to the Government who then decide how much to send back for local services. We can blame our councillors for the reduction in local services, but they're severely limited by what the current chancellor decides.

Please come to the meeting, even if you can only pop in for a short time.  It's important that our ward councillors know we have an interest in what they do in our name with our council tax money.
