Despard Road

Several consequences of the gyratory makeover have proved contentious, including the removal of the loading bay outside the Charlotte Despard pub in Archway Road. TfL are now proposing a replacement bay in Despard Road (the recently paved area where the underpass used to emerge) with egress onto Archway Road and loss of some parking spaces. There is a survey to elicit public response, but hurry if you want to comment as it closes on 10th March. Although TfL is conducting this consultation, Islington Council is the Highway Authority for Despard Road and will be responsible for final decisions affecting the proposals. Details are on the TfL website, and there is more information on our Gyratory page. And here is a direct link to the survey.

Archway Park

You may recall that work was delayed because the electric supply to the park shelter needed to be disconnected prior to its demolition. Islington now report that UK Power Network (UKPN) have given a disconnection date of 2nd March, and once this has been completed work will resume. LBI advise that due to the complexity of the work and the extent of the earthworks, the anticipated completion date will not be until the Summer. See the plans.

Facebook Group

Our Facebook group is a forum for local news and information, communication between residents, recommendations, sharing and other fun things. It replaces the website forums, blog and local traders list, which are seldom used and, in the case of the latter, difficult to keep current and accurate. To join up go to facebook.com/groups/whitehallpark/ or click the Facebook icon at the top of this page.
Articles from What’s New that are time-expired but might still be of relevance can be found on the ARCHIVE page.
