Planning appeals tidied 22-10-2019

My working methods (regarding appeals) over the past few years have left something to be desired. There have always been more appeal pins on the map than there were outstanding appeals. Finally, I’ve found a better way of working. In future the map will show only outstanding appeals at the date of its update, reported here – usually weekly. The three current appeals are at UB10 8… then EL, JF and TA.  Map link.


Overnight closure of Breakspear Road South Fri 25 Oct

the latest from HS2

Notice of overnight road closure on Breakspear Road South – Friday 25 October 9pm to Saturday 26 October 6am

Posted on Oct 18th 2019 by HS2 in Hillingdon

Following earlier emergency repair works to the road surface on Breakspear Road South near our compound entrance, a further overnight road closure is required to complete a permanent repair.

We understand these works will affect road users and the local community and we apologise for the late notice.

To minimise the impacts to road users the closure is being undertaken during night time hours when traffic is lighter. The road will be fully closed between 9pm on Friday 25 October until 6am on Saturday 26 October. We will remove all traffic management by 6am on Saturday morning.

The same diversion implemented during the previous closures will be in place; you can see a map of the diversion below. Access will be maintained to residential properties. Advance warning signs will be installed as early as possible before works commence. Access only signs will be displayed, with operatives present for the duration of the closure.

Give your opinions on RAF Northolt airspace planning

From the station commander:



Royal Air Force Northolt is currently undertaking an Airspace Change Proposal that it is required to draw up as part of the Department for Transport and Civil Aviation Authority’s Airspace Modernisation Strategy (CAP1711). The proposal is being conducted in accordance with the Civil Aviation Authority’s ‘CAP 1616’, which sets out the regulatory process for changing airspace design.

I am pleased to inform you that RAF Northolt successfully completed Stage 1 of the CAP 1616 process in July 2019, whereby the Civil Aviation Authority approved the design principles that will be used to guide the Airspace Change Proposal. RAF Northolt is now at Stage 2 of the process, where it will develop all of the possible design options for its airspace and appraise each option to understand the impact, both positive and negative.

As part of Stage 2, we will continue our engagement with those stakeholders who may be affected by any proposed flightpath changes. I would therefore like to invite you or a representative to attend one of our ‘drop in’ sessions at RAF Northolt. The sessions will be held on Tuesday 19 November 2019 from 1500-2000 and Monday 25 November 2019 from 0900-1400.

During the drop-in session, we will explain the work that has been conducted to date as part of Stage 2A: Options Development and seek feedback on the methodology we have used to develop our design options. At this stage I must stress that we have not produced potential flight paths or identified preferred routes. We have purely drawn up all the possible design options that align with our Statement of Need and design principles, that will be appraised as part of Stage 2B: Options Appraisal.

I look forward to seeing you at one of our drop-in sessions.

There is very little parking at the venue. it would be preferable to take the Central Line to Ruislip Gardens and walk down.

If you do drive, please note there is a one way system (signposted).
