New Year's Day Parade

In common with many of my Council colleagues I will be joining the Westminster City Council Float for which this years theme is Peter Pan and participating in the Parade which has now become the largest of its kind in Europe.

Starting from the Ritz the Parade makes its way to the Houses of Parliament and in previous years as many as 1 million people have lined the route.

Hope to see you there!

Poland Street

The long running problems associated with the closure of Poland Street are now nearing an end.

The development which had obtained rights to close the public highway is nearly complete (see the brochure attached) which means that traffic flow should be restored helping to alleviate some of the problems caused to traffic by various developments and particularly by the works being undertaken by Crossrail.
