A Better, Brighter Borough!

Kingston is now positioned to become  a better, brighter borough now that the Liberal Democrats have lost control of Kingston Council after twelve years.

During this period we have seen

  • the failure of our child safeguarding service
  • one in four children having to enroll in schools outside the Borough
  • the highest number of injuries due to potholes in London
  • the highest level of drug-related offences in any local town centre, and
  • the steady deterioration of our local shopping parades.

And for all this we have paid the highest council tax in London.

50% more than the London average!

Six out of ten local residents feel that the Council does not provide value for money. There is a pressing need to reduce the size of the Guildhall and to improve the level of service being delivered. Especially as the Goverment wants more to be done locally.

Yes, Kingston is a great place to live ... one of the best in the country ... but it has issues which must be addressed.

Your new Conservative administration will face many challenges

and so we will have to set some priorities. We will focus on five areas of improvement:

  • more school places
  • better care for the vulnerable
  • a safer town centre
  • investment in roads and pavements, and
  • the revitalisation of our local shopping parades.

Thank you for voting for a Better, Brighter Borough.
