How long does it take to move a shopping trolley?

Conservative Peninsula Action Team member Charlie Easton has spent three months trying to get the Council’s street cleaning team (‘Cleansweep’) to remove some rubbish from the shrubbery of the Park Row car park. A summary of his experience is 4 phone calls, 3 call centre operatives, 2 polite "asks" on the street, 1 manager, 1 meeting and 10 weeks later: Cleansweep Remove a Shopping Trolley!

Olympics may shut local roads

Conservatives have responded to government proposals to close roads across Greenwich and Woolwich during the Olympics. The proposals cover roads around and between the shooting events in Woolwich and the equestrian competition in Greenwich Park.

Conservatives get glass used as grit removed from streets

In the cold snap after Christmas, the Council decided to put down broken glass on the pavements around Greenwich instead of grit. Over a month later in March the glass still lay in patches around various streets and Conservatives led by parliamentary spokesman Spencer Drury have been organising street cleaning in the worst affected areas.
