Anti-Social Behaviour at Primrose Hill

Police have noted an increase in parties and loud music occurring at Primrose Hill at nights in recent months. This has also been happening at other parks across London.

A videocall was held with local residents and police to discuss what can be done to reduce anti-social behaviour.

Among the options discussed was the possibility of installing lockable gates to Primrose, that would be locked at night to reduce the number of people getting into the park. The Royal Parks, who manage Primrose Hill, will also be putting up signs asking people to act responsibly.

Hampstead swans: the latest installment

As you may be aware, the Camden New Journal has been following a pair of newly-mated swans at Hampstead Heath, both with sad back stories (search previous posts for more details).

Well, the story continues …

Having successfully hatched some cygnets (CNJ, 01 June 2020), “the Widow” was attacked by a dog (CNJ, 23 July 2020). She was taken to The Swan Sanctuary and treated for her wounds, and closely watched for signs of infection.

She made a good recovery, and was happily re-united with her family (CNJ, 04 August 2020) .

The City of London, who manage the Heath, have fenced off the area near where the swan was attacked, and have increased the barriers around the dog swim area.

The Camley Street and St Pancras Way area is seeing a number of changes at the moment, and further (contentious) development proposals will happen in the near future.

So Camden Council have developed a draft Planning Document for the area, setting out key issues, planning objectives, and design principles.
