As I reported in June the developers had requested the Mayor take responsibility for deciding their application to build a hotel on Falcon Road.
The Clapham Junction Transport Hub Team was formally launched this morning (although they have been operational for a month). Kit Malthouse, the Deputy Mayor with responsibility for policing came down to Lavender Hill police station and Clapham Junction.
After Tuesday night’s BATCA Open Forum I was pointed in the direction of Sadiq Khan’s website, and, specifically, his coverage of the news that Tooting town centre is to get its own police team.
It’s not a commonly celebrated day, perhaps because it isn’t generally associated with drinking copious amounts of alcohol, but it’s St George’s Day today.
Some more good news for Tooting Town Centre: it will soon have its own dedicated police team, similar to the Safer Neighbourhood Teams in each of the borough’s wards.
As I posted via Posterous earlier, Boris Johnson came to Clapham Junction to formally announce the East London Line would be extended to SW11.
