Earlsfield residents can have their say

Published: Monday 27th February 17

Residents living in Earlsfield will be able to tell councillors and senior town hall officials their priorities for the area at a special feedback session this week.

The next  ‘Let’s Talk’ meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 1 and give residents of Earlsfield ward an opportunity to deliver their verdicts on the range and quality of the public services they receive.

Residents can choose any issue to discuss, with popular topics at previous meetings including parking, street cleaning, recycling, schools, housing, policing, public transport and the local NHS.

Come along and have your say

The sessions are designed to give people a direct way to highlight local issues with their elected representatives and senior town hall officers who will be on hand to answer questions from the audience and listen carefully to ideas and suggestions on how services could be improved.

The meeting is being held in St Gregory’s Church Hall, 306 Garratt Lane on March 1 and will begin at 7.30pm.

It will be attended by the three Earlsfield ward councillors Angela Graham, Charles Lescott and Rachael Stokes, plus the leader of the opposition Simon Hogg. The meeting will be chaired by the leader of Wandsworth Council Ravi Govindia cabinet.

People who are unable to attend can submit questions in advance via the council’s website at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/letstalk. A summary of the issues raised by residents will be posted on these web pages after the meeting.

People with a disability who require support or assistance to attend should call Gareth Jones on (020) 8871 7520 or email garethjones@wandsworth.gov.uk.

A leaflet advertising the meeting has been hand delivered to very home and business in the ward.

As a resident living very near to the Greyhound Stadium development, I am very concerned about the impact of increased traffic, and pressure on parking spaces on nearby roads. The area is already badly congested with the Lidl car park exit. I would really like to see all day residents parking introduced in all streets, especially on Saturdays; ie match days.

The state of Garratt Lane outside the station and walk through to Thornsett / Groton Roads has improved but still a lot of rubbish and waste, which sometimes doesn’t get cleared for days. We would favour daily street cleaning, which realistically can be the only resolve to this situation. Also Clapham Junction station too after a weekend of drinking and takeaways is disgusting. Can this please be looked at?
