Most of the roads around NW3 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in NW3 a parking suspension is a necessity. The suspension has to be booked up to 14 working days in advance of the required date. These are booked with your local council online. For smaller NW3 removals, using vans, we can load and unload for short periods on single yellow lines. Otherwise a dispensation would need to be booked, if we are packing and NW3 flat moving.
A Little Bit About NW3
The NW postcode district was originally created as part of the London Postal District in 1856. The postal district of NW3 covers Hampstead, Belsize Park, Frognal, Swiss Cottage, Chalk Farm and Gospel Oak. The local authorities covering these areas are Camden and Barnet.
Hampstead is known for its intellectual, liberal, artistic, musical and literary associations and for Hampstead Heath, a large, hilly expanse of parkland. It has some of the most expensive housing in the London area. The village of Hampstead has more millionaires within its boundaries than any other area of the United Kingdom. The name Hampstead comes from the Anglo-Saxon words ham and stede, which means “homestead”.
The name Belsize Park is derived from French bel assis meaning ‘well situated’. The Manor of Belsize dates back to 1317. The name comes from the 17th century manor house and parkland (built by Daniel O’Neill for his wife, the Countess of Chesterfield) which once stood on the site. The estate built up between 1852 and 1878, by which time it extended to Haverstock Hill. After World War I, the construction of blocks of flats began, and now a great many of the larger houses are also converted into flats.
Frognal has a diverse architecture, with many architecturally notable buildings. The central area, lacking large council estates, has undergone less change than some other parts of Hampstead. University College School, an independent day school founded in 1830, relocated to Frognal (the road) in 1907.
Swiss Cottage never enjoyed the discreet exclusivity of neighbours St John’s Wood, Hampstead and Belsize Park or the youthful verve of Camden, but in recent years, it has had an amazing facelift. The local council, while declaring part of Swiss Cottage a conservation area, carried out an £85 million regeneration scheme which resulted in a new state-of-the-art sports and leisure centre and a refurbished library. The library, a Grade II-listed building designed by Coventry Cathedral architect Sir Basil Spence, now incorporates a gallery exhibiting works by local artists. The redevelopment also includes a landscaped park as well as new housing, community facilities, a market opening three days a week, and a purpose-built home for the Hampstead Theatre. The northward stretch of Finchley Road offers decent shopping opportunities and a retail and entertainment complex, the 02 Centre.
Chalk Farm underground station is the closest tube station to the nearby, upmarket neighbourhood of Primrose Hill. Home to a number of writers, artists and actors, Chalk Farm and Primrose Hill are popular places to celebrity spot where Jude Law, Sadie Frost and Sienna Miller are all part of the area’s famous set.
Gospel Oak’s name derives from a tree under which a host of legendary figures are said to have preached, including St Augustine, Edward the Confessor, John Wesley and even St Paul. The tree marked the boundary between the parishes of Hampstead and St Pancras.
The gospel oak vanished sometime in the mid-19th century. The uncer¬tainty as to exactly how and when this occurred corresponds with the mytho¬logical nature of its history.
