Successful prosecution of loiters on Honeypot Lane

I have been informed that Joint-working between Brent Council officers and the Brent Police Partnership Tasking Team has led to the successful prosecution of individuals on Honeypot Lane breaching the Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO).
The individuals were found loitering in the area with the intent of seeking casual labour between the hours of 06:00 and 12:00, which is in violation of the PSPO. One individual pleaded guilty and was fined £290, whereas the others who failed to attend court were fined more than £500 each. Thank you to everyone involved for their hard work on this case.
If you spot any anti-social behaviour on the streets of Brent, when you are in a safe place, please report it by phone to 020 8937 1058 during working hours, or email

Proposed Overground (West London Orbit Railway)Dudden Hill line

 My struggle to open up Duddenhill only freights line  track as Overground Orbital Railway for general public use as a  light railways transport system from Hounslow to Hendon and beyond started in 2004 with help of John Cox a Brent campaigner. Our struggle started to ask Barnet council to find alternative routes for 29,000 extra vehicles estimated by Barnet Council coming to  Brent Cross development area every day  to avoid conjunction and pollution. Brent council, under control by then  LB Dem fully supported this idea which is now I am glad to say has gone beyond campaign level to becoming reality. Below is a photographic history of the struggle.

Organise a Play Street for London Car Free Day

Residents are being urged to swap cars for spacehoppers and turn their streets into playgrounds in support of London Car Free Day 2019.
Brent is among 16 London boroughs that have signed London Play's Play Street Pledge ahead of the event, helping children to play out in the streets where they live and bringing communities together while tackling air pollution.
London Car Free Day is on Sunday 22 September 2019 and applications to hold a Play Street must be received by Saturday 20 July, to give us time to process their request and arrange for a Temporary Road Closure.
For more information about organising a Play Street and to apply, please go to:
