Not project related but the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea has banned weekend construction works

Article :

Kensington and Chelsea bans weekend construction work
Constructionenqurier.com
16th Feburary 2016

Quote:
Noisy building work will not be allowed on the weekend in Kensington and Chelsea after the council agreed a new Code of Construction Practice.

Residents in the west London borough have long complained about noise from construction work.

The new Code means generally ‘permitted hours’ for noisy works will no longer include any time on a Saturday.

The code extends the current ban on Sunday working.

It also introduces a further set of restricted hours for high impact activities such as demolition and concrete breaking.

The code will be phased in and enforced in the borough through the use of Control of Pollution Act 1974 powers.

Councillor Tim Ahern, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Cabinet Member for Environmental Health, said: “We completely recognise the importance of building and construction work in the borough.

“However, we must appreciate that for people who live close by it can have an enormous impact on their lives.

“This is why we have introduced this new Code of Practice. It will help bring peace on the weekends and require developers to work far more closely with people who live close to their sites to mitigate, wherever possible, the problems associated with noise, dust and disturbance.”
This move is likley to impact on many projects in the area;

Earl's Court
V&A Expansion
Chelsea Waterfront
Iceberg Homes

London's Chinese New Year celebrations biggest outside China
BBC News
14 February 2016


Quote:
Thousands of people lined the streets of London for the Chinese New Year celebrations.

The capital's parade, the biggest in the world outside China, celebrated the year of the monkey.

Performers walked along Charing Cross Road and Shaftesbury Avenue to celebrate the new year, which started on 8 February.

Ten lion teams performed in the march, which wound up in Chinatown.

Just because the Powell & Moya site is available doesn't mean it's the right place for a concert hall
Building Design | 17 February 2016

The idea of a new concert hall for the London Symphony Orchestra and other classical music producers has gained currency in the last six months, after its new conductor Simon Rattle raised it as part of his discussions about moving back to London. The imperfections of Barbican Hall as an acoustic venue seem to be widely agreed and, after some time, Boris Johnson has become a supporter of the idea. The government has agreed to fund a business case for the new venue and there is to be a favourite site.

Official opinion has coalesced around placing the concert hall into the site vacated by the Museum of London’s planned move to Smithfield’s General Market. In an urban cavity hard by the Barbican, the site is both a traffic roundabout and something of a pedestrian island, accessed by the fragmentary high-level walkaway that was to have replaced street pedestrian activity in the City in the Sixties. Location of the new hall would have to await the move of the Museum of London. With all this in mind, others have suggested an alternative venue on the north bank of the Thames at Blackfriars, opposite Tate Modern.

@britainelects
However does this rely on the same sample pool that lead to wrong predicting the outcome of last year's general election.
