Greenwich 10: The Questions

With just a few days before registration closes to participate in the Conservatives London Mayoral Primary, and just over a week left to vote for your favourite mayoral hopeful, have put together a list of ten questions relevant to issues in our Borough,  for each of the four candidates to answer.





The questions are:


Should the early morning contra-flow in the Blackwall Tunnel be re-introduced?


How can Greenwich take advantage of its Olympic status to encourage healthier lifestyles amongst the borough's residents?


How do you evaluate the success or otherwise of the rollout of Safer Neighbourhood Teams across Greenwich?


Do you think the current type of new housing units being built in Greenwich is right for the borough?


South East London is poorly served by public transport. How would you address this issue?


Do you think the proposal to have a Congestion Charge zone in Greenwich is a good idea or not?


How will you address the safety concerns of Greenwich residents travelling late at night on our buses?


Do you think the decantation of the Ferrier Estate has been handled well by Greenwich Council?


Would you support the construction of the Thames Gateway bridge as currently proposed?


Do you think Greenwich gets value for money from the mayor’s precept?



We will be publishing the four candidates responses in full and without edit over the next couple of days.
