  1. Minutes of last meeting/ matters arising

Minutes were distributed by email. No amendments were sought.

  1. HPS / Abacus Planning update

The application is currently expected to be addressed at the November 15th committee given the October committee could not be met as various new submissions were made by the applicants requiring additional consultation time.

Notably the acoustic wall to the rear of 51,52 Downshire Hill no longer forms part of the proposals following representations, however the acoustic report to justify noise levels generated in the playground is awaited.

HCRD are to have further reports prepared by the planning consultants, heritage, traffic, and environmental consultants in response to the amendments, subject to the second round of fund raising.

  1. Expenditure/ funds HPS and gift

Mark is arranging a further fund raising round with the ambition of raising further sums of the order of £5000 for funding the additional consultants reports. The funds raised thus far are expended and Mark can report further on this at our next meeting.

  1. Refuse/Fly Tipping update

Actions by Stephen Ainger, Redding and Stephen Grosz have had notable effect in recent weeks following a meeting with Matthew Fernandez of Camden.

  1. Healthy School Streets Zone. Frognal.
