Delighted to report that the Brent Highways Committee have agreed to officers' recommendations to remove parking bays in Richmond Avenue, the entry to the supermarket from the High Road. I see this as a sensible decision at last, having urged both the Council and Sainsbury’s to retain the current entry and exit to the store rather than proposing unsuccessful planning applications for entry via Ellis Close and a complicated revision of the car park itself. It was also agreed to create a new bay in Ellis Close and to step up enforcement. This should ensure a safer entry and exit for customers and the increased enforcement should deal more effectively with the suspected misuse of disabled blue badges in the area. Less good news was the removal of recycling facilities at Sainsbury's a few months ago. There are too few recycling sites in the ward - especially for cardboard.
