Following complaints from residents concerned about persistent loitering, antisocial behaviour and noise in Leinster Gardens a brothel was shut down through a combined operation from with the Safer Neighbourhood Policing Team and the Council. Residents have expressed their appreciation for the peace this has since brought to the area. Necessary welfare checks on the premises for potential victims of trafficking and referrals were carried out as part of the operation.
Crossrail have begun improvement works to the Westbourne Park pedestrian footbridge, spanning the Great Western Railway line between Westbourne Park Villas and Alfred Road. This work is a result of the great response to petitions by Westminster City Council, SEBRA and the residents of Westbourne Park Villas to improve the poor environment of the existing footbridge and the lack of step free access at the Westbourne Park Villas end of the footbridge.
The works will include:
The footbridge is proposed to be totally closed to pedestrians between Saturday 23 July and Thursday 25 August 2016. This closure period coincides with the school holiday period as the footbridge is heavily used by students at the Westminster Academy. The footbridge will be open before the August Bank Holiday weekend 2016 when the Notting Hill Carnival takes place and pedestrian numbers in the area are higher than usual.
The works are expected to be fully completed and the worksite cleared by Thursday 8 September 2016.

Out of hours work on Moorhouse Road
There have been continued complaints around hours of work on a basement construction at 9 Moorhouse Road, especially on Saturdays. An our of hours inspection is being arranged and a verbal final warning has been given to the site manager. A final warning letter will be sent upon the next instance of out of hours works.
Incorrect hoarding on Hereford Road
With works now underway on 1 Hereford Road, residents reported that the hoarding was not adequately labelled, with the project manager, site manager, planning permission and other important details not displayed on the hoardings. The developer has been informed and a visit will take place soon to ensure the hoarding is properly signed.
The blue hoarding related to Crossrail’s works on Lord’s Hill Bridge had a panel broken and passers-by had left waste inside the box, which was growing by the day. City Inspector John Moorhead contacted the Crossrail liaison manager for Westminster who had the board fixed and the waste removed.
