Its’ back to the Trojan Horse

Trojan Horse Cartoon

The recent Free School traffic chaos reminds us of David Hewson’s words here on wyeweb March 2013.

‘The Free School may have been born of lofty ideals and good intentions but do Imperial Kensington now see it as a Trojan horse?’

David also stated… ‘No one talks much about traffic flows in the future (it’s one of the most galling omissions of the free school organisation). But these are serious issues that can’t be handled by a simple ‘fix the crossing’ solution. Unless Imperial plan to come up with a surprise toll tunnel option, more roads would be on the way.’

Back to lofty ideals and good intentions……. an email written by a Parish Councillor 27 March 2013 gained under an FOI (which Parish Councillor is immaterial) to Richard Alderton Head of ABC’s Planning and Development lists a summary of points from a meeting with John Anderson (Chief Executive Imperial College Fund). In his covering email our Parish Councillor states that his meeting was ‘A reality check with someone managing a property portfolio ….. and that he would not say that Steve Howe and co have been putting up smoke screens but the houses in exchange for community activities including the Free School should really have been spelt out at the start!’ Continue Reading »

Parking – Total lack of thought from Free School

Published by under Wye Free School

The following has been reported to Wyeweb by various people…….

Occupation Road was blocked this evening by two coaches parked adjacent to each other  whilst children were unloaded.

A Mother in one of the invisible cars that do not exist, parked on the right hand side on the double yellow lines waiting to pick up her child.

Meanwhile people leaving BCP were blocked from leaving Occupation Road and people trying to get to their homes were prevented from doing so. Access to the allotments was also blocked. This does not take into account emergency access.

Our Parish Council were part and parcel to supporting the coming of the Free School and will soon be ringing their hands at the parking problems to come as it expands. Continue Reading »
