Electric Vehicle Lamppost Charging Consultation

The ATA has been notified by Transport team at the Council that a public consultation has gone live to allow them to consider locations within the Borough to trial lamppost charging for electric vehicles. There is a link to the consultation below and it is your opportunity promote the Triangle and your street. The trial is really focused on existing EV owners and those considering buying an EV in the future that might be put off by limited opportunities to charge in the vicinity but this is our opportunity to promote the Triangle and to encourage EV's to the area.
Whilst we haven't seen the style of the charging points we'd assume they are more fitting for the conservation area by being linked to lampposts than the charging points on Blisset Street and Maidenstone Hill which are our closest charging points currently.
Link to the consultation here:

Display of wooden model of 1840 Greenwich closes 30th June

The Greenwich section of a 1:1500 scale wooden model of London as it was in 1840 is on display at the Greenwich Visitor Centre, The Old Royal Naval College, SE10 9LW until Saturday 30th June, 10am-5pm, admission free.
Constructed by community interest organisation London 1840, the different sections of the model are on display at various London locations as part of the London Festival of Architecture. The model reaches from Paddington in the west to the River Lea in the east, and from Highbury in the north to Kennington and Greenwich in the south.

London 1840 says:
In 1840 Greenwich was two working towns separated by probably the finest collection of classical buildings in the country. West Greenwich, or Old Greenwich according to Booth, 'retains the characteristics of a country town.....the inhabitants are with the exception of a few shop-keepers, working people - coalies, gas stokers, lightermen, bargemen, waterside and other labourers', and East Greenwich, also a working riverside town but a little more salubrious with better houses and bordering on the countryside - the Greenwich Peninsula.

LONDON 1840 will exhibit the Greenwich section of the model during the London Festival of Architecture month, 1- 30 June 2018, at the Greenwich Visitor Centre, London SE10 9LW.
