Meet the Nine Elms Action Team
The Nine Elms Conservative action team are here to help. Like you, we live locally, and we want to make Nine Elms the best it can be. From delivering Europe’s largest regeneration while charging the lowest Council Tax in Britain, to dealing with the essential basics like littering and potholes.
- Cost of living: rising service charges and the London Mayor’s council tax rises mean Wandsworth’s low council tax is especially important.
- Housing: completing the building work and developments to help people onto the property ladder and reduce building disruption. We also need to ensure developers contribute to our thriving community.
- Best place to live, work and play: driving social mobility, supporting independent businesses, creating jobs and apprenticeships, campaigning for better travel links (like the potential Nine Elms footbridge) and cycle safety on Nine Elms Lane are all high on our priority list
We are here for you. If you have any great ideas to make Nine Elms even better, just get in touch and we would be delighted to discuss. Whilst we can’t fix everything, if we can make a difference we will.
