Conservatives meet with police & residents

In January, Charlton’s Conservative team joined residents and the ward’s Safer Neighbourhood Team to discuss problems in the area. Issues raised included Lorries using residential roads, increased burglaries and anti-social behaviour. Residents of Eastcombe Avenue and Bramshot Avenue in particular are worried about the effects of large lorries using these streets to get to the car compound at the rear of Bramshot Avenue. Not only is Eastcombe Avenue used by lorries, it is also used as a rat-run.
Charlton Conservative Richard Shackleton said: “The council never listens to residents about street furnishings. Either they install furniture that people don’t want, or they don’t introduce calming measures that people do want. If Conservatives are elected to the council we will actively consult residents about what is best for their street.”
