    Ward forums are a great way for residents to learn more about Council services, what the local police teams are doing and about future plans. Stopping them is a retrograde step.

    Save our Ward Forums

    122 signatures

    Ealing Liberal Democrats have uncovered Ealing Council's Labour admininistration plans to scrap ward forums as part of their budget for future years. Money allocated to ward forums to spend on local priorities will be completely axed.

    Councillor Gary Busuttil said: "This is a kick in the teeth for residents of the borough who are already angry at the fact they are rarely ever consulted or engaged with regarding matters in their communities. Ward Forums are an important mechanism that engages residents with ward Councillors who represent them to the council. Money allocated to Ward Forums helps community causes and improvements to our public spaces like new playgrounds, better lighting and zebra crossings.”

    Do you think this is important? Tell us by signing our petition.

    Lib_Dems_112_smaller2.jpgCouncillor Gary Busuttil added: "If it were not for Ward Forum funds, projects like lighting to make our parks safer, zebra crossings to help residents cross busy roads or support for charities such as 'Move into Wellbeing' that provides social and fitness classes for the elderly would not happen."

    We the undersigned call on Ealing Council to make a commitment to not remove Ward Forums and ward budgets across Ealing borough.

    We will include your name and address when submitting the petition to Ealing Council.

    Chiswick Police Station

    311 signatures

    The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, previously announced that 37 police stations across the capital would be closing. This sadly included Chiswick Police Station. This has followed a number of reductions in the services offered at Chiswick Police station.

    Liberal Democrats think this is totally unacceptable. Chiswick is a busy area and closing so many police stations will create a barrier between the police and the community they are meant to be serving. Even though ten percent of crimes reported are at the police station some people are not happy to use internet based police services.

    Local police stations create a visible presence. Officers spend more time patrolling the area close to the station as officers come and go for their breaks, at the beginning and end of their shift and when they have to secure their CS spray, a registered firearm arm which has to be locked in a designated place. 

    Do you think this is important? Tell us by signing our petition.

    ChiswickPoliceStation.jpgGary Malcolm, Liberal Democrat Councillor for Southfield ward, said: "I suspect that the fear of crime will increase if the police reduces it visibility of officers to the public. There are examples elsewhere, when local criminals knew that the police would take longer to respond and took advantage of this."

    We the undersigned call on London Mayor Sadiq Khan and the Government to keep Chiswick police station open and fund the service properly; and Ealing and Hounslow Councils to stand up to the Mayor and the Government on this issue.

    We will include your name and address when submitting the petition to the Metropolitan Police.
