The ward’s Heritage at Risk pieces of history

This article follows on from the article about the Temple in the grounds of Mount Clare, Minstead Gardens. From this it was thought it might be worthwhile explaining a bit more about those buildings which are listed by Historic England as Heritage at Risk.

When did the buildings become Heritage at Risk?

Email (dated 10 January 2018) from Historic England listed the following years as to when they were registered as Heritage at Risk;

 Notice how three of these buildings feature in the Roehampton & Putney Heath ward?

Next year the Temple, if still on the list, will be celebrating 20 years on the list?

As the Temple has been covered, it might be worth sharing photos with you of the other buildings.

Medfield Street heading for a Controlled Parking Zone

At the Community Services Overview and Scrutiny Committee on 20 February 2018 a discussion regarding a Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ) for Medfield Street, Treville Street, Ponsonby Road and Roehampton High Street was discussed.

To have a read of the various documents refer to section 14 of the meeting and refer to Paper number 18-69 and the Appendices, though is short, the proposal taken from the Paper’s summary is;

“A petition was received in October 2016 from some residents of Medfield Street, Treville Street, Ponsonby Road and Roehampton Lane, requesting the introduction of parking controls to address parking difficulties.

 Authority was obtained to carry out a consultation with residents in these roads, and to include Roehampton High Street, to ask for their views on extending the Roehampton CPZ (R2) into the area. The outcome of the consultation showed that a majority of respondents supported the proposal. This report recommends implementation of the zone extension into Medfield Street, Treville Street, Ponsonby Road pending a further consultation with residents and businesses on the parking arrangements in Roehampton High Street.

 The Director of Resources comments that the costs involved with extending the Roehampton CPZ (R2) area and further consultation as identified in the recommendations of this report will be met from within existing approved General Fund revenue budgets”.

Other considerations?

Now, where will cars potentially be pushed to park? Maybe on the Alton Estate? It’s been highlighted what’s happening on the Alton East.
