Conservatives support residents on housing

Cllr Eileen Glover has been working closely with residents in Hambledown Road and Greenhithe Close regarding Greenwich Council's proposals for housing development in the area.

Accidents on Court Road

Councillors Glover and King were successful in getting yellow lines painted on one side of Court Road. Thanks to the perseverance of some local residents part of the accident black spot area near Tarnwood Park/Woodmere is now surfaced with anti-skid material.
