Labour’s Social Housing crisis

The Labour Government and local Labour Council are failing the most vulnerable members of our community. Their crippling mismanagement of the social housing problem in Woolwich has caused a 75% increase in the waiting list, leaving many families suffering in overcrowded conditions. Like many other problems that face Woolwich today, the Labour Councillors seem to turn a blind eye.

Conservatives plan to cut crime in Woolwich

Woolwich suffers from high levels of violent crime and an existing Labour Councillor has described their Woolwich ward as the ‘murder capital of Greenwich’. However, not only have the Labour run Council failed to improve our safety but are planning to take even more police off the streets.

No upgrade for Plumstead Manor?

Conservatives have condemned Labour’s handling of the new schools programme for Greenwich Schools. The Labour Council stated that new and refurbished schools would open in Sept 2009, but only 2 out of 5 had been started at that point. Labour had yet to submit a plan for three schools including Plumstead Manor by at the start of term.

Woolwich Estates left to rot

Labour announced plans in February 2006 to demolish 1,000 homes in the Connaught, Morris Walk and Maryon Road/Grove Estates and decided not to undertake any upgrading of the homes on these estates as a result. Having first decided to demolish the estates in 2006, Labour decided that outline plans would be displayed publicly in summer 2008, but by summer 2009 not a single plan had been made.

Boris puts more police in Woolwich

Boris Johnson’s policing policy meant that this year a new policing team has patrolled around Woolwich Arsenal DLR station. The 9-strong police team is funded entirely by Boris-led organisations and is part of the Mayor’s commitment to increasing the policing of transport hubs all over the capital.
