Low traffic neighbourhoods

Leaflets have appeared on the estate encouraging people to support Low Traffic Neighbourhoods. I have a whole raft of messages from people who are extremely concerned about their own and their neighbours’ safety in those cut-off zones.

They are cut off from

  • Emergency access
  • deliveries
  • taxi drop offs and pick ups

Please read the article and the comments people make.

Old Bethnal Green Road hub seems to have become a paradise for drug dealing. People are afraid to walk home without traffic and exposed without being able to get a taxi to drop them off near their doors. Health care workers take longer to reach patients.

Bethnal Green ward Facebook group

There is a new Bethnal Green SNT ward Facebook group.

There are the latest statistics published each month and people from within that wider area can discuss Neighbourhood Watch issues. All SNT news letters will also be made available in this group.

Membership of this group is closely moderated and it is run by a police approved MSA from the National Neighbourhood Watch network.

Bicycle storage consultation

All residents of Parkview Estate are welcome to participate in our questionnaire and consultation about bicycle storage spaces on Parkview Estate.

Please complete the questionnaire to ascertain whether and what sort of bicycle storage is needed on Parkview Estate.

It is very important that you respond to this survey because responses will be used to determine further deployment or removal of already existing storage units on the estate.

Your data will be shared with Tower Hamlets Homes, Tower Hamlets Council and the Parkview Residents Association for evaluation.

The forthcoming meeting of the Tower Hamlets Neighbourhood Watch Association has also invited the Tower Hamlets Cycling and Walking Champion Councillor Kyrsten Perry and the Mayor to discuss cycling storage among other issues. This meeting will take place on 22. June 2021 18:00 – 20:00 at the Glasshouse, organised by the Tower Hamlets Neighbourhood Watch Association.

Get ready for the 2021 gardening season

Already we can prepare our crops to be planted outside later in the spring indoors. Seeds can be germinated in pots ready for planting.

Most of our residents have window boxes, balcony boxes or balconies. Some have gardens. There are many great websites available, which tell us what to prune, plant, tend and when.

No gardening effort is too great or small. Indoor gardening has become a fashion for many houseplant lovers too.

If you want to show off your indoor or outdoor gardening efforts, please contact us with pictures.
