The bidding for the Notting Hill police station has been extended to 13 May, which means that the decision whom to sell to won’t be taken before the middle of May. The reason for the extension isn’t known (this will be the third extension), but it’s probably a combination of lack of bids and the restrictions on taking politically sensitive decisions during the weeks leading up to an election, in this case the local elections on 5 May. This extension means that the ongoing petition to keep the police station for continued community use can run for several more weeks.

At the public meeting about TfL’s bicycle lane plan for Notting Hill Gate and Holland Park Avenue, held in Kensington Town Hall on 13 June, three days before the public consultation ended, the council leader Elizabeth Campbell announced to the 600 attending residents that the council would reject the plan. This somewhat chocked the London mayor’s walking and cycling commissioner, Will Norman, as the council previously had said that it would be neutral about the plan until the result of the public consultation had been published.
