Somehow this petition has slipped through almost unnoticed. It will run only until the 24th April. It needs to get to 10,000 signatures to get to a Government response or, at 100,000, it might get a parliamentary debate.’ So, if you agree with the proposal, please sign it, if you haven’t already done so. Please pass the link on to everyone you can think of. Thanks!
We call on the Government to abandon the HS2 Rail project:
The most recent Police newsletter for the Hillingdon community is now available at:
Earlier in the year, we ran a post here inviting you to share your feelings about and understanding of HS2. If you’re interested you can download/view the results here.
They are in two parts – first the survey and second the answers to question number 3: Please tell us any thoughts about the communication methods above. Also about any other ways you get your information about HS2.
The results may enlighten you, unless you’ve been following the HS2 saga closely, in which case they’ll probably confirm your perceptions.
The programmes for this year’s Festival have been delayed. The plan is to drop one through every door in Ickenham. Meanwhile, if you have broadband, you can get a pdf copy (30MB) via the Ickenham Festival website.
Ray Puddifoot, John Hensley and David Simmonds continue as our councillors following the recent election. (Later: I should have included existing West Ruislip councillors Philip Corthorne and John Riley and welcomed Devi Radia for the same ward.)

As you will have realised, the previous announcement from HS2 proved to be incorrect. We now have an update on the temporary traffic lights. Work starts on Monday 12th March.
The link is https://hs2inhillingdon.commonplace.is/news/2018/03/09/update-on-lane-closure-on-breakspear-road-south
This is at the heart of the message:
A northbound lane closure would be required during March on Breakspear Road South to enable the set-up of a construction compound. These works are set to commence on Monday 12th March for a period of up to three weeks. Two way traffic lights will be utilised to ensure that traffic flow is maintained in the area. The traffic lights will be in operation 24 hours a day but will be manually operated at peak times (07:00 – 10:00 and 15:00 – 18:00) to enable disruption to be minimised and alleviate pressure on the network.
Just found this interactive map from LBH that shows conservation areas and tree preservation order areas. Type Swakeleys House into the search box, close the Legend box and you get a decent zoomable map of the Ickenham conservation area and beyond.
