Most of the roads around W11 are controlled parking, and either parking suspensions or dispensations are required. For larger Removals in W11 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 W11 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 W11 flat moving.
A Little Bit About W11
The W postcode area is a group of postcode districts covering part of central and part of west London. The postal district of W11 covers Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and Holland Park. The local authorities covering these areas are Westminster, Kensington and Chelsea and Hammersmith and Fulham.
The origin of the name “Notting Hill” is uncertain though an early version appears in the Patent Rolls of 1356 as Knottynghull, while an 1878 text, Old and New London, reports that the name derives from a manor in Kensington called “Knotting-Bernes,”, “Knutting-Barnes,” or “Nutting-barns”, and goes on to quote from a court record during Henry VIII’s reign that “the manor called Notingbarons, alias Kensington, in the parish of Paddington, was held of the Abbot of Westminster.” For years, it was thought to be a link with Canute, but it is now thought likely that the “Nott” section of the name is derived from the Saxon personal name Cnotta, with the “ing” part generally accepted as coming from the Saxon for a group or settlement of people.
Ladbroke Grove is a west London road in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Ladbroke Grove tube station is located on the road, at the point where it is crossed by the Westway. The adjacent bridge and nearby section of the Westway (London) was regenerated in 2007 in a partnership including Urban Eye, Transport for London and London Underground. It is also the nearest tube station to Portobello Road Market. It is the main road on the route of the annual Notting Hill Carnival in August. The street is named after James Weller Ladbroke, who developed the Ladbroke Estate in the mid nineteenth century, until then a largely rural area on the western edges of London.
Holland Park gets its name from Lord Holland, a nineteenth century land owner. The park itself is about 22 hectares in area and is considered one of the most romantic and peaceful parks of West London. The northern half or so of the park is semi-wild woodland, the central section around the ruins of Holland House is more formal with several garden areas, and the southernmost section is used for sport.
