This year Lambeth residents have an opportunity to vote for change to our public services and to safeguard our environment. However, change for the better after eight years of Labour control and waste requires a new vision and leadership – leadership only the Conservatives can provide. Our manifesto identifies where mistakes are being made, and more importantly it sets out how they can and will be corrected by the Conservatives.
Clapham Conservatives, Cllr Shirley Cosgrave, Hannah Ginnett, Jane Ellison MP, Bernard Gentry and Gareth Wallace recently helped Trees for Cities and the Friends of Clapham Common plant trees at Eagle Pond on Clapham Common.
One of the most serious problems facing Clapham residents is the disruption and disturbance caused by anti-social behaviour. Labour Lambeth has presided over the expansion of Clapham into a satellite of the West End, ignoring the legitimate concerns of those of us who live in the area.
Vauxhall Conservatives were delighted to be joined by The Rt Hon Andrew Mitchell MP, Member of Parliament for Suton Coldfield and former Chief Whip and Secretary of State for International Development for their recent Christmas Party.
At a meeting of local Clapham residents and council officers to discuss Lambeth’s ‘Co-operative Parks’ programme and its application to Clapham Common, local Conservatives put forward their action plan for the future management of the common.
Shocking new figures show that Labour Lambeth failed to collect over £41million of the council tax it was owed in 2011-12, with this shortfall adding over £300 to the average householders’ bill as a result.
