Help on deterring vice

Hyde Park’s neighbourhood team have just publicised the 20 arrests, 35 cautions and 22 community protection notices they have made recently. The HPEA, Paddington BID and other stakeholders and residents were represented today at a meeting to discuss possible supplementary private patrols, with police training and co-operation. This could be a way forward.

Look out for Neighbourhood Link

After meeting Neighbourhood cluster officers this morning, I’m delighted that PC Kennedy-Hill has sent out the new email address for reports of vice in the ward, asking for descriptions, dates, times and locations of sightings and in particular, vehicle registration numbers. Sign up via

Proposals for Portsea Hall – on show tomorrow

I took  a look at the plans for 6 new flats on the roof at Portsea Hall in Portsea Place. The brick structures containing the lift motor and water tanks are being moved to the basement, creating space for new 1, 2 and 3 bedroom flats. The flats are set back from the roof edge and have been given an Art Deco look matching the rest of this 1930s block. I think the effect is an improvement on the existing lift and water housing. Residents can judge for themselves on November 12 at the exhibition of the plans at the Amba Hotel Marble Arch, Bryanston St, London W1H 7EH from 4pm – 8pm.
