Wembley regeneration plans get go ahead

Wembley regeneration plans get go ahead

Wembley regeneration plans

Plans for 4,850 new homes, a new school and student accommodation around Wembley Stadium have been given the green light.


The creation of 7,000 new jobs, new retail and leisure space as well as new community facilities and parking spaces around the national stadium all formed part of the planning applications, which were submitted by property developer Quintain. More than £80million will also be provided by Quintain to improve local infrastructure.


After listening to a number of representations about the proposals, including hearing speakers from The FA, the council’s Planning Committee granted approval to the applications yesterday evening (May 11).


During the three and a half hour meeting, Members discussed in detail matters relating to transport, safety and design and found that, on balance, the plans should be granted approval subject to a number of conditions including ones to improve transport, safety and the exit of fans from the stadium.


A council spokesperson said: “These plans mark the next phase in the regeneration of Wembley and will create much needed new homes, jobs, leisure and educational facilities around the iconic home of football.


“While these plans will help accelerate the transformation of Wembley, the committee did consider all representations in detail and these concerns have been taken on board with the series of additional conditions which were imposed.”


“Safety always comes first and we are confident that the plans will ensure that fans and other visitors to the national stadium can continue to enjoy these facilities while providing the significant regeneration which the area needs.”


Quintain’s plans will now be subject to consideration by the Mayor of London.

Pothole puts all UK cars at risk

Pothole peril puts UK cars at risk
A pothole in a road in Tooting, SW London

BREAKDOWN callouts to motorists whose vehicles have been damaged by potholes have risen by almost a quarter in a year, the RAC said.

There were more than 25,000 incidents last year involving damaged suspensions, wheels and shock absorbers, figures released by the motoring organisation to coincide with the second National Pothole Day show.

Drivers in East Anglia made the most calls for help (4,547), but the largest rise in callouts over the past year was in the south east of England where the increase was 62%, to 2,686.

The north east of England saw callouts rise by almost a third to 3,783, while incidents in Scotland increased by more than a quarter to 2,537.

The biggest headache for drivers was damaged suspension springs, with 42% more incidents reported last year compared with 2014.The RAC described the rise in callouts as worrying.

Chief engineer David Bizley said: “Potholes can wreak havoc with vehicles and are therefore understandably hated by motorists.

“It is very worrying that our patrols have dealt with more pothole-related breakdowns in 2015 than they did the year before because we did not experience a particularly cold winter in either year.”

Recently announced investment should help improve the condition of Britain’s roads but there is still a way to go, Mr Bizley said.

Some local authorities have invested more in road maintenance to address the backlog but problems experienced, even in mild weather, suggest the fight against potholes is being lost, he added.

“We shall only win the battle once sufficient preventative road surface maintenance is undertaken to prevent potholes appearing when the first bad weather arrives.

“On top of the £6 billion already promised, the Chancellor made available further funds in the Autumn Statement and whilst this is still not enough to meet the shortfall, it may hopefully mean we will see a decline in ‘pothole generated breakdowns’ this time next year.”

Drivers are being encouraged to report potholes using the RAC Report Pothole app.

• Vehicles, plant and equipment fitted with exhaust silencers

Uber Faces Lawsuit Over Passenger Safety, Alleged Sexual Assaults


Uber Faces Lawsuit Over Passenger Safety, Alleged Sexual Assaults

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Two women who claim they were sexually assaulted by the Uber’s drivers are suing the ride-hailing company over passenger safety.

The 52-page complaint, filed Thursday in US District in San Francisco, alleges Uber fails to protect its female riders by performing inadequate background checks on drivers.

A Connecticut resident identified only as Jane Doe 1 and a Florida woman listed as Jane Doe 2 claim several recent incidents similar to their cases indicate “systemic deficiencies regarding Uber’s safety measures concerning drivers.”


Both women were allegedly sexually assaulted by Uber drivers. Boston Police arrested one Uber driver and charged him with assaulting Jane Doe 1 on February 7.

Police charged another driver with assaulting Jane Doe 2 in Charleston, S.C., on August 9.

“Uber’s claims of rider safety have proven to be false and hollow. Investigations into its safety measures reveal that Uber routinely fails to adequately screen its employees and regularly hires drivers with known criminal histories, at the expense of its customers who are placed squarely in danger,” the lawsuit reads.
