The Labour council justifies plans to demolish people’s homes on Cressingham Gardens, Westbury, Central Hill Estate and others, by saying there are 21,000 people on a waiting list for new housing. However, this is not the case.
Following a stormy Lambeth council meeting, Lambeth Conservative Group Leader Cllr Tim Briggs stated a Conservative led council would halt the current Labour-led council's decision to demolish low-rise social housing, if the Conservatives had a majority at the next election.
Labour Lambeth faced down a barrage of opposition to force through its decision to destroy Cressingham Garden for a second time and replace it against residents wishes. The official response of Cllr Tim Briggs, Conservative Group Leader and Councillor for Clapham Common Ward outlines his dismay at the inhuman consultation and poorly argued report.
This year Lambeth residents have an opportunity to vote for change to our public services and to safeguard our environment. However, change for the better after eight years of Labour control and waste requires a new vision and leadership – leadership only the Conservatives can provide.
Lambeth Town Hall have scored a spectacular own goal by publishing a shocking fake campaign using fictitious stories of dead of children to score a political point over the consultation to close Clapham Fire Station.
