Collect Peter Hendy – yes he who is Commissioner for Transport in London – from Highgate tube station and drag him to look at the infamous fence which blights that patch of road but which some residents believe cuts noise. Peter agrees to go away and have a think about what might be a solution to this twin problem.
Then I drag him up to Highgate Village to regard in person the proposed changes to the bus station which would see buses standing outside the two restaurants (which both have outdoor seating and are part of cafe society in the village). Not surprisingly, those proposals have caused huge upset. He seems unlikely to find the extra £200,000 per year to move the bus stand down North Hill, but he does see the problem.
He will get back to me on both issues as soon as poss!
