It has been brought to the BTRA's attention that there is little to no parking available to residents after 8pm when the parking restriction is lifted, this has caused some residents to voice their annoyance at having to park on the street. The BTRA will be taking this matter up with Hounslow Highways and requesting that the parking restrictions be reviewed to allow residents to park their vehicle in an allocated parking bay and not having to park on the street.
We are aware that the gridles in the parking spacesare not fit for the job with some of them coming away completely and casuing risk to vehicles plunging into the holes, the BTRA will be raising this matter with the next meeting it has with Hounslow Homes scheduled for June.

Above all, I hope it will be a time of strength for friends, family, colleagues and loved ones left behind. The Grenfell Inquiry opened on 21st May 2018 with emotional tributes to all 72 people who lost their lives.
