What's in a name?

As you may have read in the latest edition of Signals, over the years, we have lost some alleys that historically connected Back Lane (know now as Thames Road) to the Strand towpath. Today we have Post Office Alley and Ship Alley but have you ever wondered about the name of other two remaining alleys – the one at the side of the Bell & Crown and the other at the side of the Hopkin Morris Homes of Rest?

Proposal for new pedestrian signage

LBH intends to introduce better pedestrian “way-finding” signage in Chiswick in 2017/18, using the Legible London signs. This signage has been developed by TfL as an intuitive, consistent, and easy-to-use system that includes maps and directional information to help people navigate by foot. The scheme is intended to be consistent across London so that the public know what to look for if they are in an unfamiliar area.

Please see attachment for further details.

Kew Bridge - pedestrian throughway update

St George's planning application for a 'cosmetic' make-over of the steps under Kew Bridge was granted last Thursday by a vote of 9:2 with one abstention.  This is a great shame as LBH's decision flys in the face of the Discrimination & Disability Act 2010 as no provision is made in the St George application for wheelchair access.
 
SoGA put forward the proposal to open either Arch #3 or #4 as a throughway but regrettably this was dismissed by the Councillors.
