What have I missed since June 22nd?
The campaign to “Save West Hampstead“, which is actually about the 156 West End Lane proposals, is in full swing and has published a detailed list of its objections. It’s unclear how much support the campaign has beyond the streets immediately surrounding the development site.

The plans for the Overground station were passed by the planning committee.
The Alice House is holding a “Whamp vs Food” competition on Thursday for charity Centrepoint. Some of the Saracens rugby team are turning up!
Next weekend is the Jester Festival – West Hampstead’s very own summer fete. There are bric-a-brac stall spaces still available.
There’s also an Open Garden on Menelik Road on Sunday as part of the National Gardens Scheme, which you can combine with others on Teignmouth Road and Anson Road.
Maygrove Road will be closed from July 1st to 17th as more work is done on the 65-67 development.
