Lib Dem councillor, Harvey Rose, chaired the first ward meeting in the Church Hall, Cunnington Street, this week. The council meeting has the role of discussing local issues and recommending spending ideas to the council’s Cabinet who will then ratify them or not.

There was a good turnout (of about 50 residents) despite lots of residents on the evening including those from Weston Road and Kingswood Road stating they had only heard of the meeting from friends and not from the council’s “Around Ealing” magazine.

Some of the issues raised and discussed were:

1. a new bus stop for the 272 on South Parade
2. gating schemes
3. the need for more bins and better litter collection from the council in Acton Green
4. a notice board to be placed in Acton Green to inform residents of local matters
5. the potentially dangerous road (road safety) of Bollo Lane because of speeding traffic from the North and the blind corner in the South near the bridge

Councillor Gary Malcolm, Southfield ward councillor, said: “It was good to have a council meeting in Southfield Ward. The old area committees were always in Acton and so many Chiswick residents never went. There were a lot of ideas of what to spend the £40,000 committee budget on and so we will be looking at these to select the best ones.”

Gary added: “The Lib Dems want to see more ideas of how to spend the money and especially those residents who didn’t come to the meeting."
