Heathrow Airport Consultation- June 2019

During the last Heathrow Airport Expansion consultation, I promised to keep residents up to date about future consultation and made clear my opposition to any plans that will see more noisy flights over Wimbledon.

Save Wimbledon Police Station

Ever since the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan made his decision to close Wimbledon Police Station, Conservative councillors and I, alongside the community, have been fighting this decision. The plan was to move all policing, including emergency response units, to Mitcham Police Station.

Parking Permit Fees

Labour-run Merton Council want to hike fees for parking permits across Merton. In most of Wimbledon and Raynes Park this means that the price you pay will DOUBLE!

Raynes Park and Motspur Park Station

I was very disappointed to learn that Raynes Park and Motspur Park stations were not chosen to receive accessibility funding from the Department for Transport.

Heathrow Expansion Consultation - Closes March 4th

Following my public meeting with representatives from Heathrow Airport earlier in the month, many residents have been writing to me to express their concerns over how proposed flight paths would impact Wimbledon.

Community Clean Up - Saturday 2nd March

I’ve been working with the Neat Streets team in Wimbledon, who are a group of residents wishing to do their bit to keep our area clean.

They have arranged a community clean up session on Saturday 2nd March, starting at 10.30am from outside the YMCA, Wimbledon Broadway, SW19 1RY.

Motspur Park Station Waiting Room

The waiting room at Motspur Park station has been closed for far too long and I have raised this with South Western Railway and Network Rail.

Network Rail agreed, and undertook the necessary work to reopen the waiting room.
