Canvassing in Peninsula ward (East Greenwich Pleasaunce)

This Saturday I went canvassing with Peninsula Conservatives around the East Greenwich Pleasaunce.  It was good to meet so many positive people and to discuss the issues which affect them.  

As Olympics approach, Labour builds over court

Conservatives have condemned a decision by Labour to build 6 houses over a basketball court on Woodlands Park Ro

Action over basketball court

In response to plans to build six 3-storey houses on the basketball court in Woodlands Park Road, Peninsula Conservatives surveyed the area. While more than 90% of residents opposed the Labour Council’s plans, there were very clear changes needed to the way the basketball court is currently being used.

More spin on the Railways

It is two years since local Conservatives highlighted the 24.5% increase in annual season ticket prices to Maze Hill. Now Southeastern trains are removing the direct service from London Charing Cross during the evening rush hour – starting 13th Dec from 18.34 until 21.26 there will be no  direct services serving Deptford, Greenwich, Maze Hill or Westcome Park stations.

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!

Trafalgar Estate Works

Various building work appears to have taken place on the Trafalgar Estate over the last year. Yet very little has been improved externally other than some half-finished wall rebuilding and the removal of the temporary fencing, lock-up container and building debris.

Conservatives protest over Law Centre closure

At the start of the year Peninsula Conservatives collected 154 signatures on a petition opposing Council plans to centralise all legal advice in Woolwich. As part of these plans Greenwich Community Law Centre would have to move to Woolwich.
