"Cricklewood Renaissance" (Innovative flowering of Latin and vernacular literatures, development of the conventions of diplomacy, and in science an increased reliance on observation? Apparently so.)

"Spread across three wards in three different boroughs – Barnet, Brent and Camden – Cricklewood faces issues common to town centres across the Capital, but which are exacerbated by the difficulties of providing services to an area crossing borough boundaries.

"Issues such as street cleaning, rubbish collection, parking management and anti-social behaviour become more difficult to manage when there is no unified authority dealing with them. This can lead to confusion and inaction, which impacts on the quality of life of residents and the viability of businesses.

"Residents and businesses in the area worried that the lack of unified services was having a detrimental effect in Cricklewood, with confusion over policing, amenities, parking, and anti-social behaviour. As in other boundary-straddling areas, local businesses and residents were often unclear as to who to contact to resolve issues, and found differing regulations and service arrangements confusing.

"To address the situation, Cricklewood residents have taken the initiative by establishing a community group to deliver improvements to the local high street and promote a distinct identity for the area."

"Gearing up for Infrastructure Investment: Stakeholders target needs"
"Mayor of London Boris Johnson announced London’s first long-term Infrastructure Investment Plan at his Vision 2020 launch in June, and the GLA has been busy scoping the project since. On December 16th, Future of London joined the first IIP stakeholder day at City Hall, to explore options for meeting London’s growing infrastructure needs.

Central to the success of the IIP is a clear understanding of context. London’s population is booming, projected to grow to 11.3 million people by 2050. How will the Capital’s infrastructure handle the demands of 3 million more Londoners when systems of all kinds are already straining to serve today’s population?

Aimed at central and local policymakers, investors and the general public, the Plan sets infrastructure as an absolute requirement for a resilient and competitive London. Transport, energy, waste, water, green infrastructure, telecommunications, and social infrastructure – including housing – all fall within the IIP’s wide remit."
