Minutes:

4.1  The Assembly received the report of the Executive Director of Secretariat.

 

4.2  Stephen Knight AM presented a petition with the following prayer:

 

“We call on the Mayor and Transport for London to increase the frequency of the 481 bus service, which currently only runs hourly.”

 

4.3  Resolved:

 

  That the petition be forwarded to the Mayor of London, as Chairman of Transport for London, for a response.

 

4.4  Valerie Shawcross CBE AM presented a petition with the following prayer:

 

“We the undersigned, call upon the Mayor of London to establish a pedestrian crossing and associated road safety features at the junction of the Tulse Hill and Brixton Water Lane, SW2 1DF to improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists and all road users.”

4.5  Resolved:

 

  That the petition be forwarded to the Mayor of London, as Chairman of Transport for London, for a response.

 

4.6  Andrew Dismore AM presented a petition with the following prayer:

 

“We the undersigned express our dismay at the scheme to convert Premier House from business premises into flats. More than 100 businesses, charities and other organisations are set lose their premises and hundreds of local jobs are at risk. This move is an economic and social double whammy for Edgware, as many other Edgware businesses themselves depend on those who work in Premier House for their own trade. We are surprised that Barnet Council did not obtain an exemption from the relaxation of the planning rules that have caused this to happen and call upon the Council, even at this late stage, to apply immediately to the Government for such an exemption. We call on the Council and the London Mayor to work with those based in Premier House facing eviction to try to avert this economic catastrophe, and if the businesses are not permitted to remain, to assist them in every possible way to relocate locally.”

 

4.7  Resolved:

 

  That the petition be forwarded to the Mayor of London for a response.
