2 OUTSIDE MULTI STORY CARPARK
3 CORNER OF QUEEN ELIZABETH STREET - the 'Disney' Tree.
The fourth tree opposite 23-24 Curlew Street will be replaced under a separate contract before the end of March 2021.

BWRT have announced the results of the competition which can be found here:
The finalists have a deadline of 11 September to submit their final design proposals. These will then be displayed in an online exhibition on the Festival's website and residents will have the chance to vote on their favourite designs from 15-25 September.
STRA is pleased to support this effort to bring real change to the Butler's Wharf jetty, a space about which many residents have voiced concerns in recent years. The jetty's value to our community as a peaceful, open space has never been more apparent than during the months of lockdown we've all just experienced.
STRA has supported BWRT in principle and through financial contributions since its inception. The launch of the design competition is an important step forward for this project.

At the STRA AGM a question was asked about what can be done about helicopter noise in the area.
Anood, our local Councillor, contacted Caroline Pidgeon at the GLA, and received the following reply. Anood will follow up in the New Year.
You will see from the links below that this is a problem that is receiving London-wide attention.
"Caroline will indeed ask some Mayoral Questions in the New Year, however in the meantime I thought this information from her website might be useful.
Caroline also asked a couple of written Mayoral Questions back in September. I thought they might be useful.
I also enclose a written Parliamentary Question asked by Tom Brake:
